Medi-Cal puts clinics to the test
Daily Breeze - Los Angeles

Clinic operators in the South Bay and throughout Los Angeles County are preparing for an influx of new patients and an expansion of services that will begin Friday under new Medi-Cal rules.

More than 500,000 low-income adults with no children will soon be eligible for state insurance. The county and its clinic partners are working to get them enrolled in Medi-Cal – and improve the county’s massive health system so these patients stay as paying customers when federal health care reform is fully implemented in 2014.
