In California, Clashing Views on Transition

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Either the state's transition to managed care is going great, or it's a confusing mess.

At a joint oversight hearing last week, convened by the Senate and the Assembly committees on health, government officials outlined a generally positive picture for the effort to move Medi-Cal seniors and people with disabilities (SPDs) from Medi-Cal fee-for-service to managed care.
"The transition of seniors and people with disabilities into managed care is part of the triple mandate from [the federal] HHS," according to Jane Ogle, deputy director at the Department of Health Care Services. "Better health, better quality and more cost-effective care."
