Judge bars CA from cutting hospitals' Medi-Cal reimbursements

Bloomberg News, December 29, 2011

California can't cut reimbursements hospitals receive for the skilled-nursing services they provide to low-income people, a federal judge ruled. U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder in Los Angeles Wednesday granted the request from the California Hospital Association for an order to stop California from imposing the reductions, saying the hospitals had met their burden of showing irreparable harm if she didn't halt the cuts temporarily.
