Letter Accuses CalOptima Officials of Improprieties
On Thursday, an anonymous letter faxed to the board of directors of CalOptima -- Orange County's Medi-Cal managed care plan -- alleges that CalOptima Chair Ed Kacic uses his position to steer funds to the Irvine Health Foundation, of which he is president. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. The letter also alleges that CalOptima board member Mary Anne Foo "accepts pay for working for CalOptima while working on its board." Both Kacic and Foo said the allegations are false.
