California waiting for Medicaid waiver renewal

October 26, 2015

California would like to give doctors financial incentives for treating Medi-Cal patients. The state also wants to take a new approach to providing healthcare to the homeless. Those are two of the proposals that depend on California being granted a Medicaid waiver renewal from the federal government. The state's current waiver expires at the end of the month, it says it's working with CMS to get the renewal approved.
