Governor's Veto Message
To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 1591 without my signature.

This bill adds Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors to the list of health care professionals whose services are reimbursable by Medi-Cal on a per visit basis at Federally Qualified Health Centers and Rural Health Clinics.

The Department of Health Care Services is developing a new payment model for these health clinics that will eliminate the need to add specific providers to an approved list. Consequently, this bill is unnecessary.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
