Lawsuit says California healthcare system discriminates

A lawsuit filed Wednesday alleges that the state’s healthcare system is discriminatory because it provides unequal care to the 13.5 million people who are enrolled in Medi-Cal, the health insurance program for low-income Californians. The suit alleges that Medi-Cal patients face big obstacles in getting timely access to care because the state pays providers so little for their services that many doctors decline to accept Medi-Cal patients.
