Today on Your Call: How does Medi-Cal work?

On the next Your Call, we’ll look at the program that serves over 8 million poor and disabled Californians.  Why does the state pay the lowest Medicaid reimbursement rates in the nation?  Will providers continue to serve Medi-Cal patients as rates are cut further?  And how will the system handle an influx of new patients as the Affordable Care Act goes into effect? Join the conversation and get your questions answered on the next Your Call, with Hana Baba, and you.
