Addressing the Needs of Older & Disabled Adults in Rural Communities: Findings From the California Rural Master Plan for Aging Initiative
In January 2022, The SCAN Foundation provided support to three advocacy coalitions to develop local Master Plans for Aging with a focus on addressing the unique challenges of aging in rural communities. Over a process of two years, the following coalitions led planning efforts across three regions (covering seven counties) across California:
- Diversability Action Network (DAN) - Shasta/ Butte/ Glenn Counties
- Central Valley LTSS Coalition - Kings/ Tulare Counties
- Inland Coalition on Aging - San Bernardino/ Riverside Counties
As the current scope of the project nears an end, the three regions will convene to share selected findings from their needs assessment pertaining to housing, transportation, healthcare access, and resource awareness; regional recommendations for program and policy implementation; lessons learned; and next steps for the regions.
Register and join us on December 6 to learn about unique needs and recommendations to improve the quality of life for older adults, adults with disabilities, and caregivers in rural regions of California, as well as glean lessons learned from this initiative to apply to your own community planning efforts.

Understanding Chronic Conditions among Californians with Original Medicare
Monday, December 11, 2023, 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
(UTC-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)
If you want to attend, register now. When your registration is approved, you'll receive an invitation to join the webinar.
On December 11, 2023, at 12:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time, the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) will host a webinar highlighting new insights on chronic conditions experienced by Californians with Original Medicare in 2021 (advance registration required). The webinar will present an upcoming chartbook on chronic conditions, with detailed data related to demographics, Medicare spending, and co-occurring conditions. The webinar aims to foster a deeper understanding of Californians' experiences with chronic conditions to promote person-centered policies for this diverse population.
Among the findings: More than half of Californians with Original Medicare had four or more chronic conditions in 2021, with the most prevalent conditions being high blood pressure (63 percent), high cholesterol (62 percent), arthritis (33 percent), diabetes (28 percent), and cataracts (24 percent). The prevalence of many common conditions varied by dual Medicare/Medi-Cal status, age, rural-urban geography, sex, and race and ethnicity. Four conditions, including drug use disorder and Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, were more than twice as common among full dual beneficiaries than among Medicare-only beneficiaries. Californians with Original Medicare were less likely than the national Original Medicare population to have eight of the top 10 most prevalent conditions.
The chartbook is based on ATI Advisory analysis of Medicare data. Preparation of the chartbook was funded by The SCAN Foundation, with oversight from DHCS’ Office of Medicare Innovation and Integration (OMII).
