Since 1983, CANHR has been dedicated to improving the choices, care and quality of life for California’s long term care consumers.

At the conference, attendees benefited from the educational training sessions focused on updates on Medi-Cal eligibility and recovery, state and federal legislation and regulations impacting estate planning, special needs trusts, ABLE Accounts, HCBS (Home & Community Based Services), and the status of California’s implementation of the Deficit Reduction Act as it applies to Medi-Cal and updates in California law.
