Federal Court Rejects Appeal of 10% Cut to Medicaid in California
Becker's Hospital Review

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals won’t hear a request led by the California Hospital Association for a full-court review to overturn an injunction that blocked the state Medicaid program from cutting provider reimbursement rates 10 percent, or $600 million each year, according to a report by California Healthline. California passed the cuts as part of its 2011 budget when it faced a major deficit.
