MemorialCare Health System Seeks To Launch Health Plan
On Tuesday, Fountain Valley-based MemorialCare Health System announced that it filed an application with the California Department of Managed Care to license Seaside Health Plan, a new plan it formed after acquiring assets from Long Beach-based Universal Care. Seaside will cover Medi-Cal beneficiaries and participate in the state Children's Services demonstration project focused on pediatric care. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program.
