Hospital-Based SNF Medi-Cal Cuts: A Crisis in Beneficiary Access
CHA Special Report

CHA has released a Special Report analyzing the effects of the proposed Medi-Cal cuts included in the Budget Act of 2011, signed by Governor Brown earlier this year, on patient access to hospital-based skilled-nursing-facilities (SNFs). According to the report, which includes research data from Avalere Health, the Medi-Cal cuts will have a devastating impact on beneficiary access to hospital-based SNF care, and, in some cases, will limit access to hospital, home health and other services.

The report is attached. Printed copies are available for members upon request. Please contact the CHA Communications Department at (916) 552-7510 or
