An unlikely coalition of doctors, dentists, hospitals, health plans and a health care union launched a statewide campaign Wednesday to support the successful rollout of federal health care reform and oppose further rate cuts in Medi-Cal, the government health care program for the poor. The “We Care California” coalition came together at the State Capitol to announce support for Senate Bill 640 and Assembly Bill 900, which would reverse cuts to California’s Medi-Cal rates, already the lowest in the nation.
