My conversation with the ever wonderful and courageous Andria McFerson covered some of the goings on at community advisory meetings at LA Care Health Plan. She and I have worked side-by-side for years doing our best to speak up for low-income consumers. LA Care is LA County’s largest MediCal provider with over 2 million members. I am sure you have seen their billboards around town. I serve as Vice Chair of a different Regional Community Advisory Committee than Andria.
Please note that she is under some sort of gag agreement not to mention LA Care by name (she couldn’t even tell me why the gag) so you will hear her say something to the affect of “the organization I work with” which is her way of saying LA Care.
