MediCal cuts threatens EPHC with closure
Plumas County News

Eastern Plumas Health Care is facing an emergency. But there is no ambulance or team of doctors that can fix this deep cut; it’s all up to California legislation.

In the next 30 to 60 days, the California Department of Health Care Services will be implementing a 25 percent cut to MediCal reimbursements to California hospitals.

Not only will DHCS be lowering the reimbursement rates back to the same rates of 2008, it will also be demanding retroactive payment dating back to June 2011.
