Community-Based Adult Services (CBAS)-formerly Adult Day Health Care -(ADHC)

"Community-Based Adult Services (CBAS)" became effective on April 1, 2012, under the California Bridge to Health Care Reform waiver (Search for Community-Based Adult Services related sections). CBAS offers services to eligible older adults and/or adults with disabilities to restore or maintain their optimal capacity for self-care and delay or prevent inappropriate or personally undesirable institutionalization.  CBAS services include: an individual assessment; professional nursing services; physical, occupational and speech therapies; mental health services; therapeutic activities; social services; personal care; a meal; nutritional counseling; and transportation to and from the participant's residence and the CBAS center.  CBAS replaced Adult Day Health Care (ADHC) services which were an optional benefit under the Medi-Cal Program through February 29, 2012.

CBAS is a Medi-Cal Managed Care benefit available to eligible Medi-Cal beneficiaries enrolled in Medi-Cal Managed Care. Eligibility to participate in CBAS is determined by the beneficiary's Medi-Cal Managed Care Plan.  Other Medi-Cal beneficiaries ineligible to enroll in Medi-Cal Managed Care may receive CBAS, if found eligible through the Los Angeles Medi-Cal Field Office, or it's designee.
