CA State Senate & Assembly, DHCS Dir.Toby Douglas, Diana Dooley Sec. CA HHS: Stop MediCal cuts to DP/SNFs or exempt the most vulnerable, rural DP/SNFs.

    1. Petition by

      Coalition of the most vulnerable CA hospital SNFs

In these most vulnerable hospitals, these cuts will not only close much needed skilled nursing facilities (DP/SNFs) and cause residents to be moved far from home, family, and friends, it will likely cause the closure of the hospitals that support them. SNF and hospital closures in these rural, isolated areas will mean the end to local health care, including essential emergency services. Also, as these hospitals are often the largest community employer, it will likely mean the beginning of the end of many communities these hospitals serve.

      By cutting the 10%, many small independent pharmacies will be put out of business. In turn, workers will be laid off and the tax revenue for the state will go down.

      Who will be the only ones to supply these drugs, the big box stores. Once competition is taken out of the equation, it will be easy for the big box stores to say we cannot afford to continue to provide these drugs at this rate and it will increase. So CA rewards companies outside of our sate on the backs of its own people. Horribly, it will always take a nightmare situation for the state to say we were wrong to cut and will end up paying more to fix it.

      We should not make cuts to a group of people that are unable to take care of themselves and need our help. Why cant our government cut spending on things they dont need not take advantage of elderly people that have no where else to go.
