California Hospitals Disappointed by Ninth Circuit Decision Upholding Retroactive Medi-Cal Cuts

The California Hospital Association (CHA) is disappointed by the decision of the United States Courts for the Ninth Circuit, Court of Appeals to sustain devastating retroactive Medi-Cal cuts.  We are evaluating next steps in terms of the judicial process.  Today’s decision only reinforces CHA’s commitment as part of the We Care for California coalition, a bipartisan statewide effort to reverse the Medi-Cal cuts for all providers. 

With overwhelming legislative support, it is clear this is a bipartisan issue. It is not about labor or business, urban or rural communities. Reversal of these cuts is a California priority.
