Ventura County Taking Steps To Launch New Medi-Cal Plan
Ventura County officials are moving forward with plans to begin operating a restructured Medi-Cal managed care plan on July 1. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. Gold Coast Health Plan administrators, who will run the plan, said it will take $298.3 million in state and federal funding over one year to pay for the plan. The California Department of Health Care Services, which controls the funding, still must approve a contract with Gold Coast.
