This bill is Supported by CANHR.

Currently, nursing home residents on Medi-Cal must pay almost all their monthly income as a share of cost to their facility, and are only allowed to keep a $35 personal needs allowance. For most, this amount does not even allow them to pay for a cell phone bill, or purchase new clothing. This bill would increase the monthly maintenance amount for personal and incidental needs from $35 to $50, and would require that the amount be increased annually, as specified. The bill would make these changes subject to receipt of necessary federal approvals.

Status: N/A
