Medi-Cal co-pays would hurt Enloe
Contra Costa Times

Gov. Brown’s proposal to have Medi-Cal patients pay a $50 co-pay when they visit a hospital emergency room would cost Enloe Medical Center a lot of money, Mike Wiltermood, the hospital’s CEO, said this morning. He thinks Medi-Cal patients wouldn’t pay the co-pays because they can’t afford to. As a result, hospitals like Enloe would be paid less by the state for their services, he said.
