Shasta County Experiments With Whole Person Care
People who don't have much money can have their lives turned upside-down by a health crisis. California's Whole Person Care program identifies people who receive Medi-Cal (medicaid) benefits who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and provides additional attention and benefits to them.
Shasta County is one of the areas participating in the Whole Person Care pilot program. We get a briefing on program structure and results from Katie Cassidy, who directs WPC in Shasta County.
