Doctors Say Governor’s Proposed Budget Cuts Would Hurt Health Reform

Some statewide doctor groups say Governor Schwarzenegger’s proposed budget threatens to undermine the new health reform law. Physicians are especially concerned about the governor’s proposed cuts to the Medi-Cal program.

The governor wants to cut Medi-Cal spending by giving patients a maximum of 10 doctor visits a year. He also wants to limit Medi-Cal patients to no more than six prescription drugs a month.
