A May 3, 2004, California Healthline story on efforts by state legislators to "crack down" on residents who are shifting assets to qualify for state-funded nursing home care incorrectly summarized a portion of a report from the Sacramento Bee. In an article published May 1, the Bee reported: "Attorney Jim Banks, who represents [James] Walker, said the search warrant allegations alleging Medi-Cal fraud in the handling of assets were 'hyperbole in the extreme.'" The May 3 CHL article misidentified a different statement from the May 1 Bee report as a direct quote from Mr. Banks. Mr. Banks' office has informed CHL that Mr. Walker denies engaging in any illegal act and that Mr. Banks did not make the statement attributed to him.This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
