Hospitals Sue To Block Medi-Cal Cuts

The California Hospital Association is asking a federal judge to block a recently approved 10-percent cut to Medi-Cal providers. Hospitals say the cut will hurt their bottom line, and will reduce access to care.

Last month, the federal government approved California’s request for the 10-percent reduction in Medi-Cal payments. State officials said the cut will help save money, and won’t limit access to care.
