Fresno Bee

U.S. District Judge Frank C. Damrell Jr. said Friday he will rule next week on the California Hospital Association’s motion for a preliminary injunction that would block a freeze of reimbursement rates to hospitals for inpatient care of Medi-Cal beneficiaries. Meanwhile, a temporary restraining order that sidetracked the planned Feb. 1 start of the freeze will remain in effect.
