While multiple provisions of the federal health care reform law have been enacted this year, health insurance still remains out-of-reach for thousands of low-income Californians. To help remedy the situation, the Blue Shield of California Foundation (BSCF) awarded $1.7 million to 10 California counties last week to help develop plans to expand health insurance coverage until federal health care reform takes effect in 2014. The counties that received grants include Contra Costa, Kern, Los Angeles, Monterey, Orange, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Joaquin, San Mateo and Stanislaus.
