California Healthline on Settlement Talks in the California Budget Cut Case
See this article, which begins:
Tomorrow, a federal judge is scheduled to hear the long-delayed court case challenging the state's adult day health care transition plan.
Both sides are trying to hash out a compromise settlement. Representatives from Disability Rights California, which filed the suit, and the state Department of Health Care Services met four days last week and may talk again today in an attempt to avoid the all-or-nothing judicial decision.
The state is due to eliminate ADHC as a Medi-Cal benefit on Dec. 1. The lawsuit challenges the efficacy of the transition plan proposed by DHCS to provide necessary care for 35,000 ADHC beneficiaries.
