Still No ‘Public’ Voice on CalOptima Board, Decision Delayed for Third Time
Voice of OC

For the third time, the Orange County Board of Supervisors Tuesday delayed adding a “public” representative to the board of directors of CalOptima, the health plan for roughly 750,000 low-income and disabled Orange County children and adults.

Supervisors gave no reason for postponing the appointment until their Dec. 15 meeting. A staff report said the delay was to “extend the application review process time,” the same reason used for the two previous postponements. No new candidates are being sought.
