California Doctors, Dentists To Rally For Higher Medi-Cal Pay

Medical office visit: $16.
Teeth cleaning: $20.

Those rates are what’s prompting doctors, dentists and other providers to stage a rally Tuesday at the state capitol. A coalition of health providers called We Care for California is calling on state lawmakers to increase the Medi-Cal and Denti-Cal reimbursement rates. Coalition members complain Medi-Cal pays one of the lowest Medicaid rates in the nation.
