State Wins Case to Cut Adult Day Provider Rates
California Healthline

After four similar cases went against the state in the past few months, the Department of Health Care Services won in court late Friday, when a federal judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Medi-Cal cutbacks. The lawsuit, brought by the Adult Day Health Care Association, challenged the department’s plan to cut Medi-Cal provider rates by 10%. Judges in four other cases issued preliminary injunctions halting those cuts, including suits brought by the California Medical Association and the California Hospital Association.
