Rejection of California Endowment Funding for Medi-Cal Renewals Was ‘Bad Call,’ Editorial Argues
A Los Angeles Times editorial argues that state lawmakers made a "bad call" when they rejected $6 million in funding from the California Endowment that was meant to help low-income state residents renew their health coverage under Medi-Cal, the state's Medicaid program. The editorial adds that lawmakers should advance a bill (SB 18), by state Sens. Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina) and Mark Leno (D-San Francisco), that would accept the California Endowment's funding offer.
