December 12, 2013 – On October 30th, The Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Universal Assessment Workgroup sponsored a webinar to assist with the Coordinated Care Initiative launch. Entitled Frameworks for Universal Assessment: External Standards and Vocabulary for the Assessment Process, a powerpoint version of the webinar is available here.

During the webinar, two of the organizations’ academic partners, Dr. Debra Saliba and Dr. Lhassa Ray led a discussion of the following two papers:

  1. Memorandum on External Recommendations for Standardized Assessment in the United States
  1. Memorandum Comparing Four States’ Comprehensive Assessment Systems

Both of these papers were commissioned by The SCAN Foundation to support the work of the HCBS Universal Assessment Workgroup. The work is compelling and may serve to highlight areas of focus for the HCBS Workgroup process.

March 7, 2013 – The Community of Constituents convened in Sacramento on February 21 for learning and discussions on a range of state and federal developments concerning LTSS, health care, and community living.  Now you can listen to the speakers, workshops and panels.  Marilyn Moon’s lunch plenary is highly recommended!

February 6, 2013 – Senate Leader Reid appointed Laphonza Butler to the new federal Long Term Care Commission. She is head of both the SEIU-ULTCW and the statewide SEIU council.

January 31, 2013 – Health Plan Complaint Form is now available online. The California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) launched a new secure, easy-to-use online form to allow Californians to file complaints regarding their health plan more quickly and easily from any computer. The new online form is available in both English and Spanish and enables consumers to request an external review of a health plan’s denial of a medical service or treatment. This external review is known as an Independent Medical Review. Previously, health plan enrollees had to submit the required forms and paperwork via mail or fax.
