Los Angeles County Medical Association joins Other Stakeholders in Lawsuit against the State of California to Protect the Rights of the Most Vulnerable Patients


LOS ANGELES, CA (July 7, 2014) —  The Los Angeles County Medical Association (LACMA) joined other stakeholders, including three independent living centers (Communities Actively Living Independent & Free, Westside Center for Independent Living and Southern California Rehabilitation Services, Inc.) and Dr. Manuel Puig-Lino in Chula Vista, in filing a lawsuit in Sacramento Superior Court seeking to, among other things, halt the implementation of the ill-conceived Cal MediConnect demonstration project, part of the State’s Coordinated Care Initiative. In addition to other relief, the stakeholders are also asking the court for a preliminary injunction to stop passive enrollment and the implementation of the pilot project, and to disenroll all duals who have been enrolled since the commencement of the Coordinated Care Initiative.
