California Hospitals Facing Medicaid Cuts?

California Governor Jerry Brown has proposed reducing state Medi-Cal (Medicaid) payments to hospitals by $150 million during the state’s 2012-2013 fiscal year.

And the governor’s proposal calls for shifting another $75 million in supplemental payment funds into the state’s general revenue fund in FY 2013-2014.

These proposals come at a time when the state’s hospitals have agreed to be taxed to help support the Medi-Cal program and raise federal Medicaid matching funds.
