Changes could mean loss of health insurance for Sacramento County’s poor

More than 13,000 low-income people face the possibility of losing their health insurance under a policy approved by Sacramento County supervisors this week, although county officials say very few will reach that point.

Supervisors voted 5-0 to remove people from the County Medically Indigent Services Program, or CMISP, if they are eligible for other coverage and don’t apply for it. No one spoke against the proposal at Tuesday’s board meeting.
