Brown signs bill to speed approval of new Medi-Cal clinics
Sacramento Business Journal

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed legislation that speeds up the process for primary-care clinics to get approval to serve Medi-Cal patients. Assembly Bill 2015 by Democratic Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez from San Diego reduces wait times to 30 days from as long as 180 days — if they are affiliated with clinics already approved. The change will help bring new clinics on line quickly at a time when the state has enrolled more than 1.9 million new Medi-Cal patients under the Affordable Care Act.
