Advocates Urge Fed to Reject Calfornia Plan to Slash Medicaid Reimbursement Rates

A consortium of 33 advocacy groups for people with disabilities on Thursday urged federal regulators to reject California's request to cut the state's Medicaid program.
Gov. Jerry Brown has asked for permission to slash his state's Medicaid reimbursement rates by 10 percent to help plug a $26.6 billion budget gap. Advocates say the cuts would be particularly harmful to people with disabilities, and are urging federal regulators to reject California's request.
