Share of Cost, A Brief Overview of the California Partnership for Long Term Care

Tuesday, Sep. 5th 2017 6:03 AM

This policy brief, written by Bonnie Burns, our Training and Policy Specialist provides background and an overview of the California Partnership for Long Term Care, and discusses reasons for its gradual decline. She raises the tough questions as to whether the program is meeting the goal of protecting those consumers most in danger of spending down to Medi-Cal with a long term care expense, and whether the program is saving any Medi-Cal funds that would otherwise pay for care. Earlier this year, Governor Brown signed SB 1384 (Liu) that, among other things, charges the Partnership program with establishing a task force of industry, consumer groups, and agency stakeholders to review and make recommendations on necessary changes to the program to make sure it fulfills that very goal.
