Court OKs Medi-Cal Pay Limits for Psychological Services
Last week, a three-judge panel of California's 3rd District Court of Appeal ruled that the state has the authority to limit Medi-Cal payments for federally qualified health clinics to two visits per month for patients seeking psychological services. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. The ruling overturned a decision by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Michael Kenny, who granted a request by three Northern California clinics seeking payment beyond two of such visits.
