$22M Emergency Loan Fund Started for Health Clinics
The California Primary Care Association is hoping to create a $22 million emergency loan fund that would help 800 community clinics and health centers in the state maintain services if the state does not have a new budget in place by Wednesday. The clinics and health centers are heavily supported by funding through Medi-Cal, the state's Medicaid program. The California HealthCare Foundation, Catholic Healthcare West, Mercy Investment Services, NCB Capital Impact and Sutter Health have contributed to the loan fund. CHCF is the publisher of California Healthline.
