“We currently are actively engaged in what we believe are productive discussions with the state of California’s Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) on a wide range of issues, including rates for Medi-Cal and the SPDs,” Gellert continued. “Based on our experience to date, current SPD rates are inadequate. We are hopeful that these discussions with DHCS will result in a process intended to ensure adequate rates going forward.“We are revising our full-year 2012 earnings guidance for the combined Western Region and Government Contracts segments to a range of $1.00 to $1.10 per diluted share due to the commercial large group and Medicaid issues,” Gellert added. “This guidance also reflects $20 million to $25 million in incremental G&A costs associated with the implementation of the dual-eligible demonstration pilots in California.”
