Kathryn created M.R.S. to provide guidance and advocacy for seniors as well as others with catastrophic Medi-Cal needs who find themselves facing high costs medical care without coverage. Kathryn has personally been the authorized representative for thousands of families who have received Medi-Cal eligibility approvals during her 23 years of advocating for California families.
In addition to those families that she personally represents, Kathryn has also indirectly been responsible for thousands of approvals because of the reform that she has been responsible for. Her oversight has established Kathryn as a recognized voice for reform in counties throughout the state where County D.H.S. Property Analysts were not in compliance with the correct interpretations of DHS regulations. Kathryn continues to maintain respected working relationships with top D.H.S. Directors who she can directly contact to implement reform when necessary that not only helps her clients but also indirectly effects thousands of unknowing families throughout the state.
The State of California Board of Behavioral Sciences has validated Kathryn’s expertise in that they previously accredited Kathryn to teach a two-unit continuing education course about Medi-Cal to educate Senior
Industry Administrators, Registered Nurses, and Licensed Clinical Social Workers. M.R.S. continue to provide the course without cost, but on an unaccredited basis to groups all throughout the state.
As a Christian business owner Kathryn takes great pride and feels blessed to be able to help families during such an inherently stressful time. When she began her advocacy (ministry) California families had few options for affordable, straightforward, trustworthy, and honest assistance.
The whole Medi-Cal process is inherently stressful and to attempt to navigate its’ bureaucracy during what is already a highly emotional and stressful time becomes too much to manage alone. Family care manager representatives are often overwhelmed with their own lives and now on top of monitoring the challenges of their loved one acclimating to a senior care home, they are further tasked with the burdensome and daunting process of spending countless hours attempting to navigate the bureaucracy that is Medi-Cal? M.R.S. is here to help!
Kathryn, like our clients, has also personally experienced the process of being a care manager for her own father, mother, and uncle. She has experienced firsthand how difficult and overwhelming managing the health plan for another can be. This is why she considers that Medi-Cal Regulation Specialists is her ministry and feels blessed to provide a service that has proven to streamline the complex process and in turn reduces the stress and anxiety of the families for whom she advocates.
