Opportunity to help efforts to increase Medi-Cal rates

Civil rights investigation puts a new twist on the fight for Medi-Cal patients’ access to healthcare.   The investigation seeks to improve access to care for all Medi-Cal recipients by challenging the adequacy of reimbursement rates and administrative roadblocks; arguing that resulting healthcare inadequacies violate California anti-discrimination law because they coincide with the program becoming disproportionately Latino.  Physicians and their organizations should contact Miranda Galindo, Staff Attorney with the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) at to learn about opportunities to support this effort.
