ALL PLAN LETTER 20-007

TO: ALL MEDI-CAL MANAGED CARE HEALTH PLANS

SUBJECT: POLICY GUIDANCE FOR COMMUNITY-BASED ADULT SERVICES IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY

PURPOSE: The purpose of this All Plan Letter (APL) is to provide Medi-Cal managed care health plans (MCPs) with policy guidance regarding the temporary authorization of Community-Based Adult Services (CBAS) provided telephonically, in members’ homes, and individually in centers, in lieu of congregate services provided at CBAS centers, during the period of this current public health emergency. This guidance is being provided in response to public health stay-at-home and social distancing guidance and directives resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak. This APL outlines mechanisms by which CBAS centers may continue to provide services to CBAS members now remaining at home. Finally, the APL addresses reimbursement for these temporary services, as well as reporting requirements for CBAS centers.
