Key Leadership Changes on O.C.’s CalOptima Board
On Tuesday, Cal-Optima Vice Chair James McAleer, CEO of the Alzheimer's Association of Orange County, announced his resignation as investigations continue into allegations of improper dealings by Edward Kacic, then-chair of CalOptima's board. CalOptima is Orange County's Medi-Cal managed care plan. During a meeting following McAleer's announcement, the board voted 6-3 to remove Kacic as chair of the board and named Orange County Health Agency Director Mark Refowitz as interim chair.
