Ventura County Star

Nearly 50,000 more Ventura County residents people could receive Medi-Cal services under federal health care reform in a deluge starting Jan. 1, county officials projected Tuesday.

The expansion of the state and federally funded program for low-income residents means Medi-Cal in the area could grow from 113,000 residents to 150,000 or 160,000 by the middle of 2015, officials told the county Board of Supervisors in a session on the Affordable Care Act.
