Reopening the doors at Healthy Families
California Progress Report - Anthony Wright

In a hearing today, the Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board agreed to restart enrolling children in Healthy Families coverage tomorrow, September 17th, after making a formal finding that funding is now sufficient to avoid disenrolling children currently enrolled in the program. While Governor Schwarzenegger has yet to sign AB1422(Bass), the bill that helps bridge the funding gap by drawing down new federal funds, he has committed he will sign it.
