Its Time To Replace Our Current Medical-Cal Waiver Program With A Benefiting  Result For Seniors and Care Providers!

California Nursing Homes are becoming impacted with long term care patients who can easily reside in a small to large residential facility. Nursing homes receive an average of $6,000 per month for a medi-cal patient when factoring in a share of cost payment. If the state can allow a less restrictive way for senior  residential care facilities to bill medi-cal directly, it will increase the census of small care homes and sustain an adequate quality of life for our Seniors. This will also save the State billions of dollars in nursing home costs. In addition, nursing facilities will flourish as more beds will become available for short term Rehab at a much higher reimbursement rate through Medicare and Managed Care. With increased income for nursing facilities and senior care residential homes, this can also open the door for increased staffing and stronger quality control in facilities who treat those with severe compromised health conditions. Overall, a new system to replace our current “Medi-cal Waiver Program” will be a win-win for all parties involved. Our current waiver program was a good start, but as become far too impacted due to overburdening restrictions.
