  • January 9, 2014: “Statement by Kathy Kneer, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, regarding the proposed 2014-15 California State Budget.
    “The State Budget proposal presents some good news for Medi-Cal providers. We truly appreciate that the Governor is proposing to stop the recoupment of the 10 percent cut in reimbursement rates paid to Medi-Cal providers. This is critical to maintaining provider participation in the Medi-Cal program as it expands to serve the newly eligible individuals under the Affordable Care Act."
