“Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California would like to thank legislative leadership for including funding in their respective budgets to reverse the devastating cuts to the Medi-Cal program.
“Earlier this month, the state boasted a record number of enrollees into our health care system. But the question remains ‘will California have enough providers to ensure quality health care for all?’ Reversing the 10% cut in reimbursement rates paid to providers who treat Medi-Cal patients will go a long way toward stemming a health care crisis in this state. Planned Parenthood remains hopeful that a solution can be worked out between the Legislature and Governor Jerry Brown to fully fund the state’s Medi-Cal program.”
