New Drug, Alcohol Treatment Certification Process Delays Hundreds of Programs Across California
Hundreds of outpatient drug and alcohol treatment programs are being delayed as they wait for approval from a new certification process the state is implementing for such providers that accept Medi-Cal patients. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. The delays come as demand for drug and alcohol treatment programs is expected to rise under the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion.
