- Civil rights suit alleges discrimination in Medi-Cal
By Catherine Ho - Wednesday Jul 12, 2017
Two civil rights groups and one of the state’s largest labor unions representing hospital workers have sued the state of California, alleging the state-administered Medi-Cal health insurance program for the poor discriminates against Latinos.The action was brought by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, the Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center and the labor union SEIU-UHW.The organizations filed suit on behalf of four Medi-Cal beneficiaries who say they had to wait months or years to receive health care after many doctors’ offices told them they did not accept Medi-Cal patients because the program reimburses providers at a much lower rate than Medicare, which covers the elderly, or private insurers.“In effect, California has created a separate and unequal system of health care, one for the insurance program with the largest proportion of Latinos, and one for the other principal insurance plans, whose recipients are disproportionately white,” the complaint says.The lawsuit was brought under a state statute that, similar to the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, prohibits discrimination based on race, ethnicity or other protected categories in programs operated by or funded by the state.The objective is to get the state to raise Medi-Cal reimbursement rates and ease administrative hurdles in the program that discourage some doctors from taking on Medi-Cal patients, said attorneys for the plaintiffs.Bill Lann Lee, senior counsel at the Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center, said it is the first time that attorneys have brought a state civil rights case in health care under the theory known as “disinvestment” — that as the population of Medi-Cal beneficiaries evolved from predominantly white to predominantly people of color, the payment rates to providers, which is set by the state, fell.“The rate is so low that it’s a disincentive for doctors to treat Medi-Cal patients, or to treat only very few,” said Lee, who previously served as assistant attorney general in the Justice Department’s civil rights division under President Bill Clinton.
