Governor's Veto Message
To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 2275 without my signature.

This bill would require the Department of Health Care Services to establish a quality assessment and performance improvement program for Medi-Cal managed care plans.

The department, however, is required by federal law to have an external organization conduct periodic quality reviews of its managed care program. The department also requires extensive plan-specific quality improvement projects.

Adopting these statutory requirements will duplicate current efforts while adding significant costs to Medi-Cal.
