|Legislature extends AB 1629 SNF funding|
|CAHF advocacy achieves stable reimbursement
After months of advocacy, CAHF is pleased to announce that the Legislature late on Aug. 31 passed Assembly Bill 1489, the trailer-bill legislation extending the authorization of AB 1629 for Medi-Cal skilled-nursing facilities.

Approval of AB 1489 ensures a stable reimbursement environment for SNF providers for the next two years. The bill is now on the governor’s desk for his anticipated signature.
The following provisions will be adopted:
CAHF will notify members when the measure is signed by the governor. Staff contact: Nancy Hayward, (916) 441-6400, ext. 106, firstname.lastname@example.org.
