California’s Rural Counties Urge Legislature to Eliminate Medi-Cal Rate Cuts
Sierra Sun Times

The Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) join the California Hospital Association and a broad-based coalition of Medi-Cal providers, known as We Care for California, in urging the Legislature and Administration to eliminate the Assembly Bill 97 (2011) Medi-Cal reimbursement rate cuts, and increase Medi-Cal payments to health care providers and facilities during the upcoming State Budget negotiations.

“Access to healthcare services in the more remote parts of California is already an issue, and these Medi-Cal reimbursement rate cuts only exacerbate it,” said Lee Adams, RCRC Chair and Sierra County Supervisor.
