Medi-Cal Transition ‘Lessons Learned’
California Healthline

The Assembly Committee on Health oversight hearing yesterday on the many transitions of programs within the Department of Health Care Services was aimed at making sure shifts to Medi-Cal managed care plans are done with a maximum of consumer input and a minimum of disruption to Medi-Cal beneficiaries, according to committee chair Richard Pan (D-Sacramento).

“A significant concern of mine is to bring public transparency and accountability to the Medi-Cal managed care program,” Pan said. “I recognize that DHCS has an active quality and accountability program — however, it hasn’t always been obvious to us and other stakeholders.”
