The prospect and possibility of reduced reimbursement payments from the State of California continue to hang over the heads of the Kern Valley Healthcare District administrators and trustees.

McGlew began his Dec. 7 report stating, “Obviously one of the biggest challenges the hospital has in front of it right now are proposed cuts to the reimbursement of our skilled nursing facility. The state, in its budget for this year, proposed a 10 percent cut to Medi-Cal reimbursement to distinct department skilled nursing facilities.”
