If you are working in nursing home admissions, hospital discharge planning or with elders in the community, it is imperative that you have current, accurate information about Medi-Cal eligibility and Recovery.

This seminar will enable you to:
- Learn about CANHR services.
- Understand the eligibility requirements for Long Term Care Medi-Cal and the expected changes coming with the implementation of the DRA.
