Volunteer Opportunities

Latest News from CALA!

The excerpt below is from a letter to the CALA Board Members.  It is just one example of how CALA is working for the Assisted Living community.  Please note the valuable links below and share as needed.

Board Members,

Here is my update on the ALR Billing meeting that we had with HCPF yesterday........

Every ALR in attendance and on the phone had an opportunity to share their problems with processing claims and reimbursement issues with the HCPF staff.  I got the impression that they did not know the severity of the problem. They were very professional and made the commitment to work with us on the problems we shared with them.

Shown below are two links that the department sent over to me this morning. These links will help people with any of their problems.
