CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2013–2014 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1541


Introduced by Assembly Member Waldron

January 23, 2014


An act to amend Section 14611 of the Welfare and Institutions Code, relating to Medi-Cal.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1541, as introduced, Waldron. Medi-Cal: hospital reimbursement.
Existing law provides for the Medi-Cal program, which is administered by the State Department of Health Care Services and under which qualified low-income persons receive health care benefits. Existing law declares the intent of the Legislature to enact a method for reimbursing hospitals for inpatient and outpatient services provided to Medi-Cal beneficiaries on a prospectively negotiated contractual basis and to develop and test alternatives that would become the basis for a permanent contracting system.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to that statement of intent.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 14611 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is amended to read:

14611.
