Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Details:
The ACEs Aware initiative is first-in-the-nation! It’s a statewide effort to screen children/adults in primary care settings, and to treat the impacts of toxic stress with trauma-informed care. ACEs Aware is built on the consensus of scientific evidence demonstrating that early detection and evidence-based intervention improves outcomes. The goal is to reduce ACEs and toxic stress by half (in one generation), and to launch a national movement to ensure everyone is ACEs Aware.
Effective January 1, 2020 DHCS approved reimbursement for Adverse Childhood Event Screenings (ACEs) for both children and adults up to 65 years of age with Prop 56 funds. Reimbursement will continue effective July 1, 2020 only to providers that have completed the required 2 hour training available on the ACES Aware website
