CPAD Information (June 2017)

Bring back Camp, Social Rec, & restore Respite!

Why do we need these services back?  Respite reduces the stress experienced by families and oftentimes allows a trusted relative or friend to provide the service. Some families prefer camp or social recreation services because of the added benefit of group social opportunities for the individual while the family is taking a break from their care. For some, a blending of these services meets their needs best. In 2009, many services, including these, were cut to save money. In a recent Budget hearing, Democrats and Republicans both said they understand just how valuable these services are to our community. They are interested in restoring them. But we need to put the pressure on to make sure this happens! And we have to act fast, because our chance ends Thursday, when the hearings are finished.

Everybody must remind the Governor, his accountants, Senate President Kevin de León, and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, that bringing this back helps families! (More ...)

Medicare Fraud Alert

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is required to remove Social Security numbers from all Medicare cards, and will do so starting in April 2018. Scammers have used this change to their advantage. Some scammers call individuals claiming to be Medicare and say they must confirm their current Medicare numbers before sending them a new card. Others call saying there is a charge for the new card and are collecting personal information. Please be aware that there is no charge for your new card and Medicare will never call you for your information. They already have it. (Post Date: March 16, 2017)
