Meanwhile, back at the ranch..

Lost in all the attention about the Governor’s announcement on broad health reform was this article by Clea Benson in the Sacramento Bee last Sunday, about what’s going on at the Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC).

It spotlights a key member and ally, the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network, and their work to implement a landmark law they co-sponsored to ensure cultural and linguistic access to care.

There’s lots of important work going on at the DMHC that needs to be watched, including a process to prevent the practice of balance billing, and the implementation of a law to set standards for timely access to care, which has been delayed, ironically.

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