California expanding Medi-Cal and streamlining enrollment
Contra Costa Times

Consumer advocates celebrated Thursday after Gov. Jerry Brown signed bills that will expand Medi-Cal to nearly 1.4 million low-income adults, streamline the program’s enrollment process and restore many of the dental benefits eliminated in 2009. The changes put California at the forefront of states moving aggressively to implement the national health reform law, advocates said.
