Health Care Reform May Expand Coverage For Californians
Neon Tommy

As the nation witnesses the first anniversary of health care reform, a new analysis shows that four out of five uninsured Californians may be eligible for coverage by the time the law’s full effects take hold. Increased coverage eligibility will be accomplished by stopping the denial of coverage based on pre-existing conditions, the expansion of Medi-Cal to more low-income Californians and extending subsidies to small businesses, according to the California Budget Project. Coverage for preventative care through Medicare will also be expanded.
