Governor newsom's 2020-2021 may revise budget update
On May 14, 2020 Governor Gavin Newsom released the updates for the state budget proposal for fiscal year 2020-2021. The proposed budget will greatly impact health care in California. The current proposal to shift $1.2 billion in Prop. 56 funds away from Medi-Cal will disproportionately hurt the most vulnerable Californians, widening the gap
for access to care.

As the state moves into Stage 2 of the Governor's reopening plan, physicians need to prepare themselves for how this might impact their practices. To assist physicians with reopening, OPSC has created a Practice Reopening resource page.
This page includes information from various sources to help physicians on which steps to take prior to reopening, financial and staffing considerations and universal safety precautions.
