New Agreement Intended To Improve Quality Of Care For Thousands Of Medi-Cal Patients In Ventura County

Posted on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 2:30pm

A network of non-profit clinics in Ventura County has signed a deal which will expand its ability to provide comprehensive care for some of its clients.

Clinicas del Camino Real reached agreement with the Gold Coast Health Plan to provide specialty health care referrals to its clients.

Up until now, Clinicas had to go to Gold Coast for referrals on the approximately 14,000 Medi-Cal member clients.

The hope is that by letting Clinicas take over the responsibility, it will streamline the process, both improving care for patients and saving money through increased efficiency.
