Sacramento Business Journal

The much disputed 10 percent cut to Medi-Cal provider fees is in place, but two California lawmakers introduced bills Wednesday to restore funding and increase it for primary care doctors. Assembly Budget Committee Chair Nancy Skinner and Assembly Health Chair Richard Pan co-authored Assembly Bill 1805. The bill would restore the 10 percent provider cuts enacted as part of the 2011 State Budget Act.
