LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles County lawmakers have ordered an audit of a nonprofit health plan that handles coverage for 1.6 million residents.

The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday for a financial review of L.A. Care, which administers Medi-Cal coverage and handles more than $4 billion in public funds.

Supervisor Michael Antonovich says state law requires the county auditor-controller to conduct annual audits but none has been performed since L.A. Care’s inception in 1994.

Antonovich was recently appointed to L.A. Care’s Board of Governors.
