Hospital Districts Calling for Higher Reimbursement Rates
A coalition of California hospital districts called the District Hospital Leadership Forum is lobbying lawmakers to increase Medicare and Medi-Cal reimbursement rates for hospitals run by public health care districts. Currently, district hospitals receive lower Medi-Cal payments than public hospitals run by agencies such as the University of California and county governments. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program.
