The California Department of Health Services has announced the winners of its 2006 Quality Awards.

The Central Coast Alliance for Health (the Alliance), a public, nonprofit health plan serving Santa Cruz and Monterey counties, won the 2006 Gold Award for providing an exceptional level of chronic disease and preventive services, such as child immunizations, prenatal care and diabetic eye exams, to its 82,000 Alliance Medi-Cal members.

The Alliance and its physician network outranked more than 30 other health plans across the state.

For the past four consecutive years, the Alliance has received a quality award and ranked as one of the top three health plans in the state.

This year, the Alliance made it to number one and received the Gold Award for its outstanding performance in HEDIS (Health Plan Employer Data Information Set).
