State turns to troubled firms after adult care cut
California Watch

California Medi-Cal officials are planning to rely on a second firm that has drawn scrutiny from the U.S. Justice Department to coordinate care for those who will no longer be served by the Adult Day Health Care program, which was eliminated in this year’s state budget.

APS Healthcare, based in White Plains, N.Y., paid $13 million to the Justice Department earlier this year to settle claims that it failed to provide services to hundreds of Georgia seniors on Medicaid. APS denies the allegations.
