Abstract:
For years, Medi-Cal's fee-for-service program has reimbursed physicians far less for many services than other states, and the disparity is getting worse. This report highlights the current and growing gap between Medi-Cal's physician service fees and those provided by Medicare and other states' Medicaid programs. It also compares select dental fees to national averages.
