Southern California Public Radio

In his proposed 2013-2014 budget unveiled in Sacramento, Gov. Jerry Brown has committed to a full expansion of Medicaid – called Medi-Cal in California – as part of federal health reform.

Under the expansion, childless Californians adults who earn up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level will qualify for Medi-Cal but will receive slightly less coverage than existing recipients.
