Santa Cruz ADHC Center Aims To Remain Afloat
Officials at the Salud Para La Gente Elderday adult day health care center in Santa Cruz say they are developing a plan to avoid closure when the new state budget eliminates Medi-Cal payments to the center on Dec. 1. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. Medi-Cal payments to Elderday, which totaled about $2.2 million last fiscal year, represent about 90% of the center's funding. An Elderday spokesperson said the plan to avoid closure likely would involve scaled-back services and financing through fees and grants.
