SSV Medical Society News - 2017 - Volume 6 - Issue 3 - March

Physicians:  At SSVMS, we are very concerned about access to care for our Medi-Cal population, and we believe that you should receive proper compensation for caring for your patients. When Proposition 56 passed in November, $1.2 billion was supposed to go towards Medi-Cal provider reimbursement through the new tobacco tax. Governor Brown's proposed budget wrongly redistributes that revenue into the general fund, thus exacerbating California's access to care issues. Please take a moment to call or email your legislators today to oppose Governor Brown's proposed budget. Legislators value your opinion and need to hear directly from their physician constituents. To look up contact information for your assembly and senate representatives, please follow this link. Thank you for engaging on this important health care issue and as always, let me know what your medical society can do for you,  ~Aileen E. Wetzel, CEO
