SB 1125: SAME DAY VISITS FOR PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH

status: SB 1125 WILL BE HEARD IN THE ASSEMBLY APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE. Hearing Date to be determined

In California, if a patient receives treatment at a community health center from both a medical provider and a mental health specialist on the same day, Medi-Cal will only cover one of those treatments. A patient has to receive treatment on a different day if they want their second treatment covered. This bill allows local community health centers to bill Medi-Cal for mental health services and other medical services on the same day.
