Editorial: ADHC Settlement Is a ‘Win’ for State and Elderly
The recent adult day health care settlement between state officials and advocates for the elderly and individuals with disabilities to establish a "similar community-based program" was "an 11th-hour reprieve," according to a Modesto Bee editorial. According to the Bee, the "threatened closures" of ADHC centers "made no sense either on fiscal or humanitarian grounds." The editorial notes, "While reimbursement will switch from a fee for service to a managed care model, the services for most of the elderly, low-income adults will endure." The editorial concludes that the settlement is "a rare win for both sides but mostly for frail, elderly Californians and their families."
