Following the Budget Conference Committee…

We are following the Budget Conference Committee this afternoon on Twitter, at @healthaccess, or www.twitter.com/healthaccess.

A full 116-page agenda of all the health-related cuts they are considering is here: http://bit.ly/7KD90

A quick two-page summary by Health Access of the health care budget cuts is now available on our website, at:

As of this writing, the committee has made some tough cuts already, but had kept “open” cuts like the elimination of the California Poison Control System, the $1 billion unspecified cut to Medi-Cal (based on federal “flexibility”), and the 10% cuts to private “safety-net” hospitals. We’ll have a full report later today.
