Gov. Jerry Brown yesterday announced his selection of Margaret Tatar to serve as chief of the Medi-Cal Managed Care Division at the Department of Health Care Services.

This position does not require Senate confirmation and the compensation is $122,196.

Tatar, 53, has been the executive director of public affairs at CalOptima— a county organized health system that administers health insurance programs for low-income families, children, seniors and persons with disabilities in Orange County—since 2003.

Prior to this, she was the planning manager for the Orange County Office on Aging from 2001 to 2003, a staff member at the district office for Assemblymember Lynn Daucher from 2000 to 2001 and a senior legislative attorney at the Colorado General Assembly, Office of Legislative Legal Services from 1993 to 1998.

Tater received her law degree from Villanova University and a search of State Bar records indicated that she is not licensed to practice in California.

She is registered decline-to-state.
