DHCS has announced that the new Staying Healthy Assessment (SHA) forms must be implemented by health plans and providers by April 1, 2014. You can download and print the forms from the DHCS website at dhcs.ca.gov/formsandpubs/forms/pages/stayinghealthy.aspx.
You will soon be able to download writable PDF forms and order hard-copy forms in larger quantities from L.A. Care’s website.
Providers are required to view a 20-minute training video on SHA implementation. This video can currently be accessed on the DHCS website. A similar training video specific to Los Angeles County providers will be posted on L.A. Care’s website by April 1. Upon viewing either of these trainings please send a confirmation email with the date you viewed the training to HealthEducation@lacare.org.
