Brown Signs Bill To Include Midwives as Medi-Cal Providers
Last week, Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed into law a bill (SB 407) that will include licensed midwives as eligible providers in the Medi-Cal Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. The new law is expected to expand access to care by giving low-income women more choices in their provider.
