Editorial: End Medi-Cal Pay for Doctors’ Medical Errors
A San Francisco Chronicle editorial urges the Senate to pass AB 542, which would prohibit Medi-Cal payments for care that results in serious medical errors. Â Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. According to the editorial, the bill would help discourage medical errors, reduce Medi-Cal spending and help the state comply with the new federal health reform law.
