How has SB899 affected the way physicians are able to treat their patients. Dr. Phyllis Cullen of the Chico Pain Clinic speaks to us by phone and gives us some insight into the impossibilities of working within that system.

On Labor Day, injured workers held a demonstration in front of Bickmore Risk Services, the McDonalds of the self-insurance plans.
