The activity was relatively weak, however, as all but one registered in the M 1 range. The distribution of activity changed appreciably with little sputters in the Lassen-Redding-Burney area as well as between Truckee and Doyle. The earthquake swarm along the California-Nevada border in Long Valley sputtered out two more tiny quakes. Just north of Truckee was a M 2.0 event ' and a M 1.8 triggered a couple miles southwest of Sierraville. The largest of three quakes at Lassen Peak measured M 1.3. They all occurred in the wee hours of the morning on Wednesday, April 17. Two of three quakes east of Burney measured M 1.4. They all occurred on Monday, April 15. A tremor measuring M 1.6 was detect- ed east of Ouincy near the Williams Loop and a M 1.6 jolt was recorded in a remote location of NW Lassen County. ' State offers EPHC hope for MediCal relief Carolyn Carter Staff Writer ccarter@plumsnews.com The tide may be turning for the financial situation at Eastern Plumas Health Care. After months of battling and asking for mercy from the state's upcoming MediCal cuts, it seems there is finally potential for relief. After the diligent work of EPHC's public relations coordinator, Linda Satchwell, some feasible facts have been uncovered that could potentially change the game. According to Satchwell, when the state of California passed Assembly Bill 97, which included the MediCal cuts to distinct part nursing facilities, the federal government asked the Department of Health Care Services to do an access study. The access study was intended to determine whether there would be adequate local access to health care should any skilled nursing facilities close down as a result of the cuts. If the Department of Health Care Services proved there was adequate local access, then the Federal Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which oversees MediCal, would sign often the cuts. According to the study done by the Department of Health Care Services, counties are divided into two categories: rural and urban. Like-natured counties would be defined as counties that were either rural or urban and had a similar bed count, or the same availability for patients. In the study, the Department of Health Care Services concluded that if counties were alike in nature they could be classified as local. However, according to Satchwell, the department was then able to say there is local access for EPHC patients in Thousands Oaks in Ventura County more than 500 miles away. After reading and analyzing the entire study, the crew at EPHC came across another study orchestrated by the Federal Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services. This study defined different types of counties. Satchwell said the Study talked about rural and urban counties, but it also mefitioned frontier counties. Frontier counties were defined as "remote counties that have nine people per square mile or fewer." "All of the discussions talked about how these communities have more problems accessing health care, and that if it goes away the next nearest is considered too far away," said Satchwell. "In short, they defined us." Satchwell said after reading more it became apparent that Plumas and Sierra counties should never have been classified as rural in the access study. She said she wrote up an analysis of the access study and pointed out that if EPHC had been labeled frontier rather than rural the study would have found there is not adequate access. On March 28, hospital Chief Executive Officer Tom Hayes and Satchwell sat down for a conference call with the Department of Health Care Services acting division chief of the Fee-For-Service Rates Development Division, John Mendoza. According to Satchwell, Mendoza's department is the one that will implement the cuts. Satchwell said Mendoza recommended the hospital request an exemption from the cuts based on the facts they gave him. He said it is possible for his department to write a state plan amendment exempting EPHC from the skilled nursing facility cuts. Rethink = ........ Ill Remodel!
