In the aftermath —

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger just signed SB474 (Kuehl) which will protect patients who live in Los Angeles and would have been impacted by the closure of the Martin Luther King Jr.-Drew Medical Center. It would provide up to $100 million to pay for services that would have otherwise been provided by King-Drew Medical Center, allowing the county to contract with other providers in the area to assure that patients could continue to receive care.

The bill also assures safety net hospitals can continue getting the money they need.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
