State deals blow to Santa Rosa birthing center
Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Sylvia Case, 27, visited the Women’s Health & Birth Center in Santa Rosa a week ago to get an intrauterine contraceptive, or IUD. But what she encountered instead was a flier referring her to a county clinic.

As of July 19, the center’s founder, Rosanne Gephart, is no longer able to use her Medi-Cal provider number to bill for services that she and others provide. Gephart is being penalized by the California Department of Health Care Services for improper documentation.
