Assemblyman Dr. Richard Pan says drug-rehabilitation centers that illegally inflate their patient numbers for profits take scarce resources away from low-income Medi-Cal patients.  The District 19 representative detailed various alleged abuses of the Medi-Cal system during an initial investigative hearing.

The Center for Investigative Reporting brought the allegations to light after they found 94-million dollars went to drug rehabilitation centers that are now being accused of deceptive or questionable billing practices.
