Gold Coast Health Plan OKs Consulting Contract Extension
On Monday, the Ventura County Medi-Cal Managed Care Commission voted 5-3 to approve a 90-day contract extension for an executive services firm to help Gold Coast Health Plan -- an HMO-style alternative for certain Medi-Cal beneficiaries -- address financial and staffing issues. Some commissioners raised concern about the cost of the contract extension. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program.
