Can a facility transfer or discharge a resident out of the facility because of a change in the resident’s method of payment from private or long-term care insurance payment to Medi-Cal payment?

Generally, no. The only exception is if the facility is not certified to accept payment from the Medi-Cal program. In that case, the facility would be allowed to transfer or discharge the resident if the resident’s stay is no longer covered by long-term care insurance and he/she is unable to continue to pay privately. However, the facility is required to inform residents of this possibility at the time they are admitted to the facility.
