California Health Care – Medi-Cal and the Affordable Care Act (ACA)
When provisions of the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA) go into effect in 2014, Medi-Cal will begin covering about 1.5 million new beneficiaries in California alone. In addition, the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008
will more-likely be enforced due to the ACA. This means that Medi-Cal will be required to cover many more individuals who need mental health
care and substance use disorder treatment.
These are important changes that, if handled properly, can benefit a large number of California citizens who have gone without vital mental health treatment due to lack of financial ability. Tarzana Treatment Centers is proud to have our very own President, Albert Senella, taking a lead position to help the State organize what could be a very complicated situation. His decades of health care and funding experience has given him a unique perspective of the changes that need to take place.
The California Healthline article, “Mental Health, Substance Abuse Treatment Changing
”, details of the challenges and spells out the possible solutions. It is an interesting look at differing approaches the State, treatment facilities, and professional organizations are taking to address health care funding. We hope you will take a few minutes to become educated on this important topic.
Telemedicine services are also available with online medical care, online mental health treatment, and online alcohol and drug treatment.
