MX Welcomes Gold Coast Health Plan

MX is excited to welcome Gold Coast Health Plan to the MX network, joining seven other plans throughout the state! Gold Coast Health Plan proudly serves more than 200,000 Medi-Cal beneficiaries in Ventura County through its network of primary care physicians, specialists, behavioral health providers, hospitals, and pharmacies. Since it was founded in 2011, Gold Coast Health Plan has been committed to providing access to high-quality care and improving the health of its members, which include 1 in 5 county residents, 1 in 8 seniors, and 1 in 2 children up to the age of 5.


Coalition Advocates for Statewide HIE

On March 1st, Connecting for Better Health, a diverse array of healthcare advocates, industry leaders, and major employers, officially launched their coalition in support of California’s first-ever statewide health information exchange (HIE) network. Manifest MedEx joined as a founding member along with several MX participants. MX expects the coalition to play an instrumental role in shaping HIE policies currently under debate in the Senate and Assembly.

Assembly Health Committee Holds Second Hearing

On March 2nd, the Assembly Health Committee held its second hearing on health information exchange. Panelists included MX board members Dolores Green, CEO of Riverside County Medical Association and Inland Empire Foundation for Medical Care and Jarrod McNaughton, CEO of Inland Empire Health Plan, as well as leaders from Manatt Health, Partnership Health Plan, California Medical Association, and Kaiser Permanente. Dr. Jim Wood, Chair of the Assembly Health Committee, has drafted AB 1131, which aligns with the language in the Governor’s budget proposal requiring health plans, hospitals, medical groups, labs, and nursing facilities to share data through an HIE by 2023.
