Alejo bill would reverse Medi-Cal cuts
The Californian - Salinas

A Salinas Assemblyman has been joined by a chorus of health-care providers in support of bills that would reverse planned cuts to Medi-Cal reimbursements to skilled nursing facilities associated with a hospital.

AB 900, authored by Assemblyman Luis Alejo, D-Salinas, would reverse implementation of cuts to Medi-Cal provider rates that are already the lowest in the nation. The cuts are part of Gov. Jerry Brown’s state budget.
