Judge won’t stop L.A. County from sending 91,000 Medi-Cal cancellations
Los Angeles Times

More than 91,000 Medi-Cal recipients in Los Angeles County will be sent letters this week telling them that their state-supported healthcare coverage will end on Nov. 30. A judge this week refused to block the notices, even though health advocates argued that the letters lack important details that would help recipients renew their plans. “I think it’s going to be a big shock when people get notices Thursday or Friday telling them they’ve been terminated,” said Cori Racela, an attorney at Neighborhood Legal Services.
