The California Senate is considering two bills with provisions to regulate physicians who overprescribe psychotropic drugs for children in foster care or enrolled in Medi-Cal, California’s Medicaid program. The bills, Senate Bill (SB) 1174 and SB 1291, take slightly different approaches. SB 1174 would require the Medical Board of California to monitor Medi-Cal prescribers’ psychotropic prescribing patterns for children in foster care. SB 1291 would require Medi-Cal mental health plans to submit annual mental health service plans for children in foster care to the California Department of Health Care Services, which oversees the Medi-Cal program . . .
