Critics charge conflict of interest in county health plan
BakersfieldNOW.com

Critics complain the company administering the large health plan for Kern County employees has a serious conflict of interest. An anonymous watchdog group and a local doctor say the company managing the plan is too closely tied to three local hospitals. The management company denies there’s a conflict and defends its track record.

In June 2009, Managed Care Systems was awarded the contract to be the administrator for the Point of Service Health Plan for county employees.
