Stakeholder Position Paper Proposed New Medi-Cal Benefit: Long-Term Care at Home

JULY 9, 2020 | California Association for Adult Day Services - CAADS
POSITION LETTER

Background and Introduction

The Long Term Care at Home (“LTC at Home”) Proposal was first released as a “trailer bill” proposal in May and then introduced to stakeholders by the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) in June 2020. Development of this new statewide Medi-Cal benefit is being fast tracked, with implementation planned for early 2021, pending CMS approval.

The initial reason given for creating a new 1915(i) State Plan benefit was to “decompress” California’s skilled nursing facilities, diverting an as-yet undefined set of Medi-Cal beneficiaries from hospital settings to home by providing alternative support. The proposal provided to the Long Term Services and Supports Subcommittee in late June indicated that the initial concept has expanded to include a broader set of goals. The proposal includes creation of a new licensure category through emergency regulations promulgated by the California Department of Public Health. Home health agencies and hospices would be categorically eligible to apply. Licensed LTC at Home agencies would be responsible for coordinating and delivering services to a limited group of Medi-Cal beneficiaries.

New Fact SHeet - How the ACA is Helping Older Adults During COVID-19

JUNE 25, 2020 | Justice in Aging | Fact Sheet

COVID-19 is putting a spotlight on our nation’s healthcare system—exposing both the ways in which programs that serve older adults are essential and the gaps. In particular, the pandemic is emphasizing how older adults’ lives are at stake in California v. Texas, when the U.S. Supreme Court decides whether to uphold the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Today, 18 states, led by Texas and the Trump Administration, submitted briefs asking the Supreme Court to strike down the ACA as unconstitutional.

Justice in Aging’s new fact sheet outlines the ways the ACA is acting as a lifeline for older adults during this pandemic. It ensures that more older adults have health insurance coverage, expands access to home and community-based services (HCBS), and prevents discrimination based on age and disability.

Eliminating the ACA’s Medicaid expansion and anti-discrimination protections would exacerbate the devastating effects of systemic racism that are causing older adults of color who to contract and die from COVID-19 at disproportionate rates.

For more on what’s at risk for low-income older adults if the ACA is struck down read our amicus brief and our 10-Year Checkup Issue Brief.

CAADS ALERT: Deal to REJECT cuts to CBAS, MSSP and Disability Services Included in Final Budget Agreement with the Governor

JUNE 22, 2020 | California Association for Adult Day Services (CAADS) | ALERT

On June 15, the Legislature wrapped up their work and sent Governor Gavin Newsom their joint budget plan that attempted to preserve CBAS and MSSP in the State Budget.

Today, Governor Gavin Newsom, Senate President pro Tempore Toni G. Atkins and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon announced that they reached an agreement on the 2020-21 State Budget.

Just minutes ago, CAADS has learned that the final budget agreement is very similar to the Legislative version of the State Budget, which passed in the Legislature last week. The final budget agreement that the Governor and Legislative leadership agreed to today continues to reject several billion dollars in draconian health and human services, including:

  • Rejecting cuts to Aging Programs MSSP and CBAS.
  • Rejecting cuts to IHSS.
  • Rejecting cuts to employment and other services in CalWORKs.
  • Rejecting cuts to Medi-Cal optional benefits and Prop 56.
  • Rejecting cuts to Disability Services.

CAADS Members Only Alert:
GOVERNOR’S MAY REVISION RELEASED - ADHC/CBAS PROPOSED FOR ELIMINATION AS MEDI-CAL BENEFIT

MAY 15, 2020 | Ca. Association for Adult Day Services (CAADS)
Members Only Alert

The Newsom Administration released its May Revision of the Budget yesterday. Given the impact of COVID-19, it reflects an anticipated budget deficit of $54.3 billion, and unfortunately, it calls for the elimination of the Adult Day Health Care/Community Based Adult Services (ADHC/CBAS) program by January 1, 2021. Following are some of the highlights from the Health and Human Services Budget Summary, and the reference to the CBAS program and other Medi-Cal programs starts on page 61 of the summary.

Over the next few weeks, both houses in Legislature (Assembly and Senate) will negotiate, make proposals and adopt their version of a proposed budget. In addition, during this time CAADS, advocates and providers will have to work with the Legislature to help them understand why eliminating ADHC/CBAS is a very shortsighted proposal.

Policy Cheat Sheet: Translating COVID-19’s Impact on Medicaid Policy

MAY 15, 2020 | Centers for Health Care Strategies, Inc. | Newsletter Link

Medicaid plays a central role in the U.S. health care system and is often essential in times of crisis such as natural disasters, economic downturns, and public health emergencies. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Medicaid programs and policies at the state and federal levels are adapting at a rapid pace.

To help translate emerging policies during the pandemic, CHCS is offering this new resource to provide a clear, digestible, and informal way to clarify COVID-19’s impact on select Medicaid policies. Originally, CHCS staffers created this Policy Cheat Sheet series for internal CHCS use, but we thought it might also be useful to external stakeholders. Clear policy explanations are in demand these days!
