VCMC cleared to receive federal funds
Ventura County Star

Federal authorities no longer plan to withhold funding from Ventura County Medical Center now that the public hospital has been cleared in a state inspection.

In a letter issued late last month, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services said the hospital will continue to be reimbursed for care delivered to people 65 and over covered by Medicare.

That also makes the institution eligible to bill for Medicaid, the government insurance program covering many low-income parents, children and people with disabilities.
