California Hospital Association to take legal action against MediCal cuts
Plumas County News

It took a week longer than expected, but the California Hospital Association will move ahead this week with either a request for an injunction or a temporary restraining order to halt MediCal cuts from going into effect until its suit challenging the legality of the reductions can be heard.

The change in timing came after the state announced it would take at least three or four weeks to implement the cuts. More hospitals have also signaled that they want to participate in the suit.
