Anaheim General seeks Medicare funds
Orange County Register - Courtney Perkes

Anaheim General Hospital, which lost essential government funding over the summer after a series of safety and quality violations, is seeking approval to once again treat patients insured by Medicare and Medi-Cal. In July, after a number of failed inspections, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services cut off reimbursement to the hospital. Such action is rare and can often be a death blow to a hospital because of the loss of income.
