Farmworkers’ Health Plan Asks for State Subsidy To Comply With ACA
California Healthline

A health plan that provides coverage for farmworkers in California is asking the state to provide a one-year, $3.2 million subsidy to help it comply with Affordable Care Act requirements, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Without the subsidy, farmworkers say that 10,700 individuals could lose their health coverage. The Robert F. Kennedy Medical Plan does not meet ACA standards because it caps annual benefits at $70,000. The health plan has received a waiver to continue offering its non-compliant coverage until September.
