"Program for Needy Is Delayed" (June 17) may have left readers with the mistaken impression that L.A. Care Health Plan is responsible for delaying full implementation of a statewide managed care program for Medi-Cal beneficiaries in Los Angeles County. In fact, the delays stem from the Health Care Financing Administration's desire to see more progress from the state Department of Health Services in correcting problems with the implementation here. In communications from HCFA to DHS, L.A. Care Health Plan has not been cited as a reason for concern or requiring corrective action.

Delivering a strong rebuke to Gov. Pete Wilson, a state health-care task force unanimously added its voice Thursday to the spreading opposition to the governor's pledge to put all health reform on hold until next year. The task force members--two-thirds of them Wilson appointees--are studying ways to regulate the HMO industry. Wilson vowed this week to veto most of the roughly 85 HMO reform bills that reach his desk before the state panel issues its recommendations in early 1998.

This health plan boasts no flashy, feel-good billboards, and it's a pretty safe bet you've never heard of it. It hasn't even enrolled its first member. But L.A. Care Health Plan is poised to become one of California's 10 largest HMOs over the next year or so. L.A. Care, a public-private consortium of private HMOs and other health-care organizations, has a big state contract to provide managed-care programs for Medi-Cal recipients in Los Angeles County.

The decision means the multibillion-dollar Medi-Cal managed care program--the largest of its kind in the nation, covering more than 1 million beneficiaries--will not be in full swing until Jan.
