It was a pandemic lengthen 2-year project to research and write a book on the life of Amos Catlin. In the course of the research, I could not locate the burial site for several of Amos Catlin’s children. Historic Sacramento Cemetery documents indicated that some of the children had been moved closer to their mother Ruth Anne (Donaldson) Catlin who died in 1878. However, there were no headstones in the plot with Ruth Anne and Amos.
L.A. Care’s systemic failure to timely process prior authorizations for health care services delayed members’ access to medically necessary health care services and had a detrimental impact on its members. Examples of member harm caused by authorization delays include a cancer patient’s health deteriorating, a plan member suffering extreme pain for over two weeks, and another cancer patient given a prognosis of six to nine months to live who disenrolled from L.A. Care because of treatment delays.

“Amos P. Catlin, The Whig Who Put Sacramento On The Map,” chronicles Amos’ life from his arrival in California in 1849 to his death in 1900 in Sacramento. Particular attention is paid to Amos’ work on organizing and building the Natoma water ditch in the early 1850s. It was during the ditch construction that Amos was elected to the California Senate. He wrote the bill to relocate the state’s capital to Sacramento. However, Amos did not consider the water projects or the state capital his most significant accomplishments in life.
As I studied the variety of paver catalogs, my eyes kept coming back to the concrete cobble stone pavers. I liked the lines, shadows, colors, and certain random nature of the small irregular cobble stone paver. As real granite cobble stones were out of my budget, the target became one of the manufactured concrete cobble stone-like pavers. To complicate the design, we wanted to keep the walkway as a design element as it is a welcoming feature leading guests to the front door. The walkway would need to be a different style of paver.
You are first offered the chance to adjust the APTC subsidy from 100 percent to a lower percentage when you first enroll in a Covered California health plan. After the enrollment has been completed you must fish around in your account to find the APTC slider. The APTC slider allows you to reduce or dial back how much of the monthly APTC subsidy you are receiving from 100 percent down to 0.
Neither Covered California nor the sample Blue Cross letter being sent to members explains why the UC hospitals are no longer in-network. Someone, Blue Cross or UC, pulled the plug retroactively to January 1. Fortunately, Blue Cross expanded their EPO network to include Sutter doctors and hospitals for 2022.
For a single adult, the monthly Medi-Cal income was $1,482. In 2022, the monthly income will increase to $1,564. In other words, an adult can earn up to $1,564 per month and still qualify for no cost Medi-Cal. MAGI Medi-Cal annual amounts for a single adult increased to $18,755, from $17,775 in 2021, for a single adult.
Fortunately, for most California taxpayers, the amount of the California premium assistance subsidy (CPAS) they received was relatively small. For some Covered California households who received large monthly amounts of the CPAS, the repayment could significantly add to their California income tax liability for 2021.
A single application that can be shared between different caregivers, perhaps several children take turns caring for an elderly parent, will keep the current care giver abreast of the latest conditions and medications. HeyRenee would not become a patient advocate, but a program to support the patient, doctors, and caregivers. The app can be interactive prompting medication alerts and accepting a reply that the drug was taken. In addition, a telemedicine appointment could be included in the app for a quick diagnosis or update if conditions worsen.
