Health care for Merced County’s ailing children to improve
Sacramento Bee

Even the most ill children in Merced County will have access to health care coverage beginning in 2011.

Not only children, but adults in the county as well stand to benefit from new laws in California that protect patients. The laws go into effect today. They include access to coverage for children with pre-existing conditions and a requirement that insurance companies justify rate hikes.
