Groundbreaking Ceremony for New Sacramento Community Clinic!
Health And Life Organization (HALO), Inc, in partnership with Alta California Regional Center to open a Medical/Dental clinic in North Sacramento

For clients moving from Developmental Centers to the community, the availability of quality heath and dental care is important.  This will be made easier when a newly constructed community clinic opens its door on El Camino Avenue in North Sacramento in 2018.

HALO was awarded funding by Alta California Regional Center (ACRC) through a request for proposal (RFP) process that looked to solicit providers to develop effective services for individuals with developmental disabilities.

Changes in Behavioral Health Treatment (BHT) for individuals receiving Medi-Cal
The state of California intends to provide BHT services as a covered Medi-Cal benefit

For individuals under 21 years of age with autism spectrum disorder, the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has communicated a change that will effect persons currently receiving BHT through regional center funding.  Behavior Health Treatment will be provided as a covered benefit, meaning families will receive the service funded by Medi-Cal.

Your Service Coordinator will be working with you on this transition.

DHCS has put out a frequently asked questions (FAQ) document to help the public understand the changes.
