Adult Day Health Care Centers (ADHC) / Community Based Adult Services (CBAS)

Community Based Adult Services (CBAS) became effective on April 1, 2012 under the California Bridge to Health Care Reform Waiver. 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 (funding source) available to eligible Medi-Cal beneficiaries enrolled in Medi-Cal Managed Care.
