On Monday, Governor Jerry Brown vetoed a Bill that would have provided $85 million of adult day services in the Medi-Cal budget to preserve adult day health in California.  The new funding was designed as a partial replacement to the $169 million Adult Day Health Care program that was cut from the state budget this year.  An estimated 35,000 senior citizens use the services.  Adult day centers began closing in June as a result of the proposed cuts, and more are expected to follow.  The Governor proposes that Medi-Cal participants will receive services in other home and community-based services and through managed care plans. Federal approval has been granted for the Medi-Cal adult day health funding for the centers to continue until December 1.  Learn more here…
