In California...one way to get attention...and we are all wondering how the budget cuts will fare once they go in to place...California stands to be hit big time...BD
Local Pharmacist Ira Freeman, RPh, of Key Pharmacy, is in his 11th day of a 15 day fast. He's fasting to protest the Governor's proposed 10% Medi-Cal providers cuts, which will negatively affect all Medi-Cal beneficiaries and the pharmacies that serve them.
"There's been very little press about how the cuts will really impact patients and the care they receive," said Ira Freeman. "Sadly, our most chronically ill patients will become sicker and end up in emergency rooms, which in turn will actually cost the state more."
