Imperial Valley News

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger announced federal approval of California’s “Bridge to Reform” Medicaid waiver, which will help California prepare for and implement new federal rules that will take effect in 2014 under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The waiver will strengthen the state’s hospital safety net and delivery system and result in $10 billion in federal resources to expand health coverage for low-income uninsured residents and improve care for vulnerable populations.
