Proposition 52 would ensure that Medicaid dollars would be directed to Medi-Cal patients and to helping pay for health care for children from low-income households.
The Desert Sun:
These Are The Propositions On The California Ballot
Proposition 52 requires a two-thirds vote in the legislature to amend the hospital fee program in order to ensure that the state uses matching Medicaid dollars for the intended purpose of supporting Medi-Cal patients and to help pay for low-income children’s health care. The state estimates savings of more than $1 billion annually by 2020 and increased revenues for public hospitals of $250 million annually by 2020. (Marx, 7/21)
