Ventura County Still Working Out Details on Medi-Cal Shift
On Monday, the Ventura County Medi-Cal Managed Care Commission tasked Earl Greenia -- CEO of Gold Coast Health Plan, the county's new Medi-Cal managed care organization -- with making a final decision on a formula for assigning Medi-Cal beneficiaries to physicians. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. Gold Coast Health Plan is scheduled to start administering Medi-Cal in Ventura County on Friday. Greenia said he would consult with a study group before issuing a decision.
