We Care for California Rally
for Quality Health Care for All Californians

California State Capitol Building
1315 10th Street
Sacramento, CA
11 AM to 4 PM

An unprecedented coalition of doctors, dentists, health care workers and hospitals have joined together to stop the 10 percent Medi-Cal reimbursement rate cut. In a first of its kind rally, the coalition, called “We Care for California," will gather in Sacramento on the California State Capitol steps on Tuesday, June 4 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The goal is to bring 10,000 health care providers together from across the state participate.

The coalition’s first major effort is to ensure that SB 640 (Lara) and AB 900 (Alejo) are passed by the Legislature and signed by Governor Brown. Both bills, sponsored by CMA and supported by CPMA, would stop the 10 percent Medi-Cal rate cut.

The “We Care for California” coalition was borne of an effort to build a strong group of diverse organizations fighting to ensure that California’s health care system doesn’t continue to get short changed, and so that implementation of the Affordable Care Act in our state moves forward successfully.
