May 2, 2013 – Over a year ago a court settlement saved Adult Day Health Care (ADHC) from being eliminated as a Medi-Cal benefit, and created the Community Based Adult Services (CBAS) benefit, which provides the same service. However, the settlement agreement is a temporary measure that expires after 18 months.
On May 8, the California Assembly Appropriations Committee will hear AB 518, by Assemblymember Mariko Yamada. The bill would, essentially, codify the court settlement, ensuring that the CBAS benefit cannot be dropped when state health officials eventually renew the federal waiver that spawned it.
