Citing ongoing financial and operational difficulties, the Department of Managed Health Care has seized control of the Medi-Cal managed care plan serving one of Northern California\'s most populous regions. The DMHC announced on Tuesday that it would go to court this week to obtain a conservatorship appointment for Oakland-based Alameda Alliance For Health. The carrier serves Medi-Cal managed care recipients in Alameda County, including Oakland and virtually the entire East Bay region. It has about 201,000 enrollees in total, of which 186,000 are enrolled in Medi-Cal.
