Medi-Cal managed care audit
The California state auditor’s office released a report Tuesday evaluating how well the state is providing access to healthcare through the managed care plans that cover most Medicaid patients in California. Eligibility for Medi-Cal, the state’s health program for the poor, was expanded under the Affordable Care Act. Since last year, enrollment has exploded, with more than 3.5 million people signing up for the first time. Nearly one in three Californians — a total of 12.2 million people — now receive coverage through Medi-Cal.
