Rejecting the big cuts…

The Assembly Budget Subcommittee on Health and Human Services, chaired by Assemblywoman Berg, has just voted to reject the major eligibility cuts in Medi-Cal, the elimination of optional benefits, and even to restore some of the provider rate cuts made earlier in the year. This is very good, a clear statement that these cuts are too severe… a determination that prior Legislatures made about these same proposed cuts.

There are cuts that they are expected to approve: cuts to public and private hospitals in a couple of ways, county administration, a modified cut on Medicare part B premiums for some seniors, cuts to Healthy Families plan rates, an increase in Healthy Families premiums and co-pays, and a cap on dental coverage in Healthy Families.

More later…

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