Signatures Submitted for Medi-Cal Provider Fee Initiative
On Monday, backers of the Medi-Cal Funding and Accountability Act of 2014 -- a proposed ballot initiative that would set the percentage the state gets from a fee levied on hospitals and designate how that money is to be spent -- submitted 1.3 million signatures in support of the measure. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. The measure also would build on a state law (SB 239) that extended for three years the Medi-Cal quality assurance fee.
