San Diego Union-Tribune

About 105,000 recent Medi-Cal applicants are waiting for final approval on their benefits because of slow communications between county and state computer servers, officials confirmed Friday.

Rick Wanne, deputy director of eligibility operations at the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency, said that, in many cases, it is difficult to transmit completed applications to the state for final approval.
