New Medi-Cal computer system at risk of delay

The state’s $1.7 billion project to build a new computerized claims management system for the Medi-Cal program is at risk of falling behind schedule this year, a state audit says. The project, managed by Xerox, has completed one of five planned phases, but the next phase, due in June, is far more complex and not likely to be completed on time, according to the audit. Part of the problem, the report says, is that Xerox and the state changed their approach to developing the new software after the project was already underway, causing confusion, delays and potentially higher costs to the state.
