SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Medi-Cal, California's Medicaid program, is less and less of a viable business for providers, they say.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger this month issued a revised state budget for 2010-11 that proposes capping spending for DME, even power wheelchairs, to about $1,800 per Medi-Cal recipient per year.
It looks like rehab providers in California dodged a bullet. AAHomecare reported this week that the state's Medicaid program, Medi-Cal, no longer plans to contract out manual wheelchairs.
