The poor less and less
Ted Rudow III, MA
California lawmakers improperly stopped funding certain medical services that rural and other specialized health clinics provided to low-income residents under the state’s Medicaid program, a federal appeals court ruled Friday. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the finding of a trial judge and said federal law requires states participating in Medicaid to reimburse clinics serving migrant workers, homeless people and other poor populations for “a panoply of medical services to under-served communities” that includes chiropractic care, dental care, optometry, podiatry and speech therapy.
