Injunction to stop 10% reduction in fees to providers denied by California judge
A California court has refused to stop a 10% reduction in the Medi-Cal program's fees to doctors, dentists and other healthcare professionals that went into effect July 1. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled against a preliminary injunction sought by a group of healthcare providers to halt the fee cuts. The court determined federal law doesn't allow private parties to sue over excessive rate cuts and those concerns should be addressed by the federal government. Members of the group suing the state are considering appealing the decision.
