California judge allows managed care program to continue over physicians’ objections
Los Angeles Daily News

A California Superior Court judge has ruled that the state’s Department of Health Care Services may continue to enroll thousands of dual Medicare and Medi-Cal patients into managed care plans over the objections of physicians and several other groups.

Sacramento Superior Court Judge Shellyanne Chang said Friday in her ruling that the Los Angeles County Medical Association and other groups that filed a lawsuit last month did not prove that the state program, called Cal MediConnect would harm patients.
