ADHCs Scheduled to Close December 1

The California Legislature appropriated $85M for a scaled down version of the ADHC program through December 1. On December 1, up to 300 ADHC centers will close, affecting approximately 35,000 seniors and persons with disabilities. About half of the $85M will fund the transition of these beneficiaries into managed care health plans, while the other half is being used to keep the centers alive from September 1 to December 1. Plans will receive a $60 per person incentive to take on the ADHC patients. Next week, DHCS will send out letters to patients notifying them of their plan options. Read more here.
