From the Caregiving Policy Digest.
An analysis from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research compared data on paid caregivers for Medi-Cal recipients, unpaid caregivers, and non-caregiving adults. Of the estimated six million California caregivers, about 450,000 are paid for their services, and about two-thirds of them (290,000) are paid Medi-Cal caregivers.
