The recent health care legislation includes several provisions which are intended to amend the Medicaid law. As you know, Medicaid is the federal law which enables each state to pass its own version of public assistance and to fund the resulting programs.
The federal government made amendments to the Medicaid law in 1993 (OBRA) and 2006 (DRA) which of course included requirements to compel each state to conform. Notwithstanding, California has done little to implement either the 1993 or 2006 changes. So a serious question becomes “When will California’s Medi-Cal program implement the new health care legislation?” Answer – No one knows.
