MONTEREY PARK, Calif. (August 30, 2022) – Blue Shield Promise Health Plan of California strongly disagrees with the Department of Health Care Services’ (DHCS) failure to issue a notice of intent to award Blue Shield Promise a contract managed care plan to serve Medi-Cal beneficiaries in San Diego County and other offering markets.
This decision is inconsistent with the stated goals of the procurement and is therefore not in the best interest of Medi-Cal beneficiaries and their communities. Blue Shield Promise is evaluating all avenues to appeal this decision while continuing its commitment as a not-for-profit managed care plan to serve its members and provide them with access to quality care.
Blue Shield Promise (formerly Care1st Health Plan) has served Medi-Cal beneficiaries in San Diego and Los Angeles counties for more than 25 years, and its parent company, Blue Shield of California has served state residents for more than 80 years. Together, they are tax-paying, mission-driven, not-for-profit health plans operating exclusively in California.
