Uninsured kids may lead to health risk
A recent article in the Contra Costa Times details the results of a report released last week for the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. As many as 220,000 or 20% of children in California will be excluded from health care reform due to immigration issues. Of those, approximately 40,000 will be eligible for coverage but may not register due to confusion about new rules that affect the California Health Benefit Exchange and the state's expanded Medi-Cal program.
