New Medi-Cal contract gives Clinicas more autonomy
Ventura County Star

After negotiations that started more than a year ago, a contract has been finalized giving a private clinic network more control over the care of its 14,000 Medi-Cal patients.

The new contract was announced this week by the Gold Coast Health Plan, which administers Medi-Cal for 100,000 people in Ventura County. It gives Clinicas del Camino Real more Medi-Cal compensation in return for more responsibilities and an increased share of financial risks previously shouldered by Gold Coast.
