Representatives from Community Health Group are pushing back against a recent state decision to remove it from San Diego County. Dozens turned out downtown Thursday to protest the state of California's decision to exclude Community Health Group as a Medi-Cal provider after next year. The group said it has been in business here for 40 years and serves 335,000 San Diegans."They cut us out — which makes absolutely no sense to us," Community Health Group Chief Operating Officer Joseph Garcia said.Garcia said the state is trying to streamline operations, going from seven Medi-Cal plans to just three.
