California Report and San Diego UT Highlight Need for RCFE Reform

A new 4-part report from KQED's California Report and an article from the San Diego U-T explore the RCFE Reform Act bills being considered by the legislature and governor. The stories reiterate the importance of this once in a generation opportunity to protect some of our state's most vulnerable and ignored populations.

CANHR needs your help to get the RCFE Reform Act bills to the Governor.

Although they are near the legislative finish line, some of the bills are meeting strong resistance from the California Department of Social Services, the Appropriations Committees and the assisted living industry.

Please take 5 minutes and urge your legislators to support RCFE Reform.

Additionally, please ask them to support SB 1124 (Hernandez) which would reform the Medi-Cal recovery system and eliminate recovery from surviving spouses and for those aged 55+ unless they go into a nursing home. SB 1124 is now on the Assembly Floor and then on to the Governor’s desk.
