WEBINAR
Medi-Cal Home and Community-Based Services and CalAIM Updates

Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) describe a wide variety of programs that provide long-term services and supports to older adults and people with disabilities enrolled in Medi-Cal to receive care in their homes and communities rather than in institutional settings like nursing homes.

This webinar will provide an overview of financial and functional eligibility for Medi-Cal Home and Community-Based (HCBS) programs, an overview of the type of HCBS waiver and state-based programs available in California, and discuss the gaps in coverage and services that lead to inequities in who has access to services in their homes and communities.
We will conclude the webinar with an update on California’s efforts to update its 1115 waiver and more broadly re-design the Medi-Cal program, an initiative known as CalAIM.
Who should participate:
Aging, disability, and legal advocates, community-based providers, local government partners, and others advocating on behalf of low-income older adults and people with disabilities.

Presenters:
Claire Ramsey, Justice in Aging, cramsey@justiceinaging.org
Elizabeth Zirker, Disability Rights California, Elizabeth.Zirker@disabilityrightsca.org
Micki Nozaki, Senior Medicare Patrol mnozaki@cahealthadvocates.org
