Sacramento Business Journal

State officials will begin rolling out a 10 percent cut in Medi-Cal fees to providers on Sept. 5, but three groups are exempt, subject to federal approval. Skilled nursing facilities that are part of hospitals in rural areas, some nonprofit dental surgery centers that treat kids with severe dental disease and certain categories of high-cost drugs that treat very serious conditions will be exempt, according to information posted this week on the website for the California Department of Health Care Services.
