Navigating California’s health care delivery system can be challenging for even the most sophisticated player, due to the State’s myriad regulations and laws in this space. California has one of the most aggressive state-based regulatory frameworks, reflecting the Legislature’s bias toward consumer protection. For providers and payors to be successful in this environment, it is critical to understand the political and regulatory landscape.
Additionally, given the significant amount of federal matching funds and state budget resources that fund California’s healthcare delivery system, it is critical to be able to navigate the state Budget process and be able to understand and influence budget priorities. California’s Medi-Cal budget alone totals $101.5 billion, more than the total budget of some other states.
