Rural Medical Providers Say Medi-Cal Cuts Will Slash Skilled-Nursing Care

Hospital officials in California’s rural counties say the latest round of cuts to Medi-Cal could leave thousands of the state’s neediest people without access to medical care.

At particular risk, they say, are elderly and long-term patients who need skilled-nursing care.

“This is a real crisis,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California, a patient advocacy group. “We have been skeptical of providers’ claims in other areas, but not with Medi-Cal cuts.”  (Smith, Sacramento Bee 11/30/11)
