Calif. Pharmacists Gear Up To Stop Medi-Cal Cuts
California pharmacists are hoping that legal or legislative action can stop a 10% cut to Medi-Cal reimbursement rates that will take effect Jan. 9, 2014. Medi-Cal is the state's Medicaid program. An effort is underway to have the Supreme Court weigh in on the legality of the cuts, while a separate lawsuit against the payment reduction was filed in San Francisco Superior Court last week.
