Editorial Calls for Higher Medi-Cal Reimbursement Rates
"Increasing Medi-Cal reimbursement rates [would] attract more doctors to the program, improve the overall health of Californians and help secure the success of health care reforms," a San Jose Mercury News editorial states. It urges Gov. Jerry Brown (D) to include funding in his May revised budget plan to increate Medi-Cal reimbursement rates, but adds that "the governor has to date shown zero inclination to raise rates that rank among the worst in the nation."
