    • Unpaid costs of Medi-Cal: The Medi-Cal shortfall is the difference between reimbursement from Medi-Cal and the cost of providing the services.
    • Other Benefits for the Poor and Underserved: Benefits provided to persons who cannot afford health care because of inadequate resources and are uninsured or underinsured, and cash donations to community partners for services to the underserved.
