Calif. Attorney General Seeks Documents Related To Ventura County’s Medi-Cal Plan, Xerox Dealings
The California attorney general's office has subpoenaed Ventura County's Medi-Cal health plan -- Gold Coast Health Plan -- for documents related to a $2.3 million payment made to the health plan by an outside contractor affiliated with Xerox. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. Observers say the inquiry could call into question how well the state Department of Health Care Services manages Medi-Cal and the program's county-level plans.
