Lawmakers Advance Bill To Reinstate Medi-Cal Coverage of Adult Day Health Care Services
On Wednesday, a bill (AB 1552) advanced in the California Senate health committee that would restore Medi-Cal coverage for adult day health care services, which provide health care and social services to individuals with disabilities. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. In 2011, the services were cut from Medi-Cal because of budget problems. The bill now heads to the full Senate for consideration.
