Sacramento Business Journal

California Health and Human Services Secretary Diana Dooley announced plans Tuesday to move about 863,000 children out of Healthy Families and into Medi-Cal in 2013, with the first wave of 200,000 beneficiaries making the transition in January. A controversial provision included in the current state budget, the move is expected to streamline care and save the state $73 million a year once fully implemented.
