The Supreme Court agreed Tuesday to review California’s controversial proposals to cut Medicaid reimbursements to physicians, dentists, pharmacies, health clinics and other medical providers.

The court’s decision to hear three combined California legal challenges is good news for Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, who wants to enact budget cuts similar to those that courts have previously struck down. Hundreds of millions of dollars are at stake.
