A controversial cut to the California’s healthcare program for the poor will begin next month, according to a bulletin distributed by state officials.

Doctors and other healthcare providers who serve Medi-Cal patients will be reimbursed 10% less once the changes are fully phased in by next January.

The first people to feel the pain will be dentists and medical transporters on Sept. 5. Next come providers of medical equipment and supplies on Oct. 24.
