Monterey County supervisors debate impact of Affordable Care Act
Monterey Herald

A new study of Monterey County’s health care safety net system suggests it can absorb the new demand for access to care under the Affordable Care Act with a few tweaks.

But it warns that local officials must make sure county residents who qualify for new health coverage are informed of their options.

The study was conducted by CSU Monterey Bay researchers and presented to the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.
