State Budget Request Details
CHA continues to advocate for a one-time state budget relief package for struggling hospitals. It would provide emergency funding to mitigate the impacts of rising medical inflation and systematic underfunding in the Medi-Cal system. Assembly Member Soria (D-Merced) and Sen. Caballero (D-Merced) have each submitted letters to their respective budget committees supporting this request. Additionally, stakeholder discussions continue regarding the managed care organization tax to ensure that funding will go to provide long-term fiscal stability for hospitals.
