Immigrant children not served by Health Care Reform will pose health risk for other children
San Bernardino Sun

Up to 220,000 California children could be excluded from health care reform because of immigration issues, according to a study released Thursday by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. The number represents about 20 percent of all uninsured children in California, the study says. Of those children, up to 40,000 may be eligible for coverage but may not apply due to confusion about new rules governing access to both the California Health Benefit Exchange and the state’s expanded Medi-Cal program.
