California officials plan to appeal Medi-Cal ruling
San Francisco Chronicle, August 21, 2008
California officials are planning to appeal a federal judge's decision that blocked 10% cuts in Medi-Cal fees to doctors, pharmacists and other medical professionals. The 10% reductions took effect in July to a large network of doctors, dentists, pharmacists, adult day health centers, and others in the healthcare system. Some 6.6 million low-income people receive Medi-Cal.
