Healthcare providers appeal to block Medi-Cal cut
Los Angeles Times

California healthcare providers are appealing a December court decision that would allow the state to cut spending on medical care for poor residents. The case revolves around the state’s 2011 attempt to reduce by 10% reimbursements to doctors, pharmacies and others who provide healthcare through the Medi-Cal program. The cut has been continuously blocked by judges worried about how it would affect access to medical care.
