California’s Dual Eligibles Project Delayed Until 2014
On Monday, Department of Health Care Services Director Toby Douglas announced that Cal MediConnect -- a demonstration project intended to better manage care for residents enrolled in both Medi-Cal and Medicare -- will not begin until January 2014 at the earliest. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. Few details were given as to the cause of the delay.
