The move reflects a changing business in which traditional food magazines, and a Manhattan address, are less important.

- Walmart pays $1.65 million to settle Medi-Cal fraud claims
By Bob Egelko - Friday Jul 7, 2017
Walmart has paid $1.65 million to settle claims that it defrauded California’s Medi-Cal program by collecting payments for unneeded or unapproved drugs, the U.S. Justice Department announced Friday.According to the lawsuit, filed by a former Sacramento-area Walmart pharmacist in 2014 and joined by the state and federal governments, the pharmacies falsely certified that the patients’ doctors had determined the drugs were appropriate for the patients’ conditions, after assessing their safety, effectiveness and cost.The suit said Walmart failed to confirm and document the doctors’ supposed diagnoses in some cases and, in other cases, billed Medi-Cal for drugs that were not prescribed for purposes approved by the program.“These Medi-Cal regulations are essential to protect both patients and limited health care funding,” Phillip Talbert, the U.S. attorney in Sacramento, said in a statement.
- Civil rights suit alleges discrimination in Medi-Cal
By Catherine Ho - Wednesday Jul 12, 2017
Two civil rights groups and one of the state’s largest labor unions representing hospital workers have sued the state of California, alleging the state-administered Medi-Cal health insurance program for the poor discriminates against Latinos.The action was brought by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, the Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center and the labor union SEIU-UHW.The organizations filed suit on behalf of four Medi-Cal beneficiaries who say they had to wait months or years to receive health care after many doctors’ offices told them they did not accept Medi-Cal patients because the program reimburses providers at a much lower rate than Medicare, which covers the elderly, or private insurers.“In effect, California has created a separate and unequal system of health care, one for the insurance program with the largest proportion of Latinos, and one for the other principal insurance plans, whose recipients are disproportionately white,” the complaint says.The lawsuit was brought under a state statute that, similar to the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, prohibits discrimination based on race, ethnicity or other protected categories in programs operated by or funded by the state.The objective is to get the state to raise Medi-Cal reimbursement rates and ease administrative hurdles in the program that discourage some doctors from taking on Medi-Cal patients, said attorneys for the plaintiffs.Bill Lann Lee, senior counsel at the Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center, said it is the first time that attorneys have brought a state civil rights case in health care under the theory known as “disinvestment” — that as the population of Medi-Cal beneficiaries evolved from predominantly white to predominantly people of color, the payment rates to providers, which is set by the state, fell.“The rate is so low that it’s a disincentive for doctors to treat Medi-Cal patients, or to treat only very few,” said Lee, who previously served as assistant attorney general in the Justice Department’s civil rights division under President Bill Clinton.
- Latino plaintiffs sue California alleging poor health care
By DON THOMPSON, Associated Press - Wednesday Jul 12, 2017
The lawsuit alleges the state violates Latinos' civil rights because poorly paid health care providers balk at providing treatment."In effect, California has created a separate and unequal system of health care, one for the insurance program with the largest proportion of Latinos (Medi-Cal), and one for the other principal insurance plans, whose recipients are disproportionately white," the suit says.About 7.2 million Latinos are on Medi-Cal, a program that covers low-income families, some elderly patients, those with disabilities, foster children and pregnant women.The California Department of Health Care Services "has not identified any systemic problems with patient access to services in the Medi-Cal program," nor have federal officials, department spokeswoman Carol Sloan said in an emailed statement.Thomas Saenz, an attorney with the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund who helped file the lawsuit, said he believes it is the first time the civil rights approach has been tried in California.
