Free Case Review

October 31, 2011

Glendale - The state is set to eliminate adult health care benefits for Medi-Cal patients beginning December 1, which was the result of massive budget deficit, reports said.

Reports said many of those affected by the scrapping of the services will include patients with Alzheimer’s disease, heart conditions and other developmental disabilities who “cannot treat themselves or do not have a family to care for them. According to the California Association for Adult Day Services approximately 22,000 seniors and disabled individuals in L.A. County will be affected by the state's decision to close the centers.

The state Department of Health Care Services explained that the program was cut due to unprecedented budget shortfall, and Medi-Cal, as the state’s second largest budget expenditure, is greatly affected.

As a result, hundred rallied in downtown LA to protest the move as they delivered a petition to the governor’s LA office with 10, 000 signatures in it to reconsider its decision.
