Governor Agrees To Take $6M California Endowment Grant, Signs Many Health Bills
California Healthline

Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed a flurry of health-related bills at the end of last week including a bill to reverse the state’s position on accepting a grant to help with Medi-Cal enrollment renewals. More than eight million Californians are up for renewal in the Medi-Cal program (California’s version of Medicaid). New eligibility rules and new forms have slowed the response rate so far. The California Endowment offered the Department of Health Care Services a $6 million grant to help with the renewal effort that would be doubled by matching federal funding.
