General Assistance and Indigent Health [01:03:10]

General Assistance (GA), also known as Interim Assistance (federally) or General Relief (in some counties), provides a meager cash and/or in-kind benefit, to indigent individuals in California who are not eligible for other cash benefits. GA is state mandated, but county funded and administered, resulting in a patchwork of different program rules. This panel will provide an overview of the GA program and indigent healthcare, and identify common issues that result in hearings and appeals.
