Obamacare No Help to Undocumented Immigrants
KQED Radio

California may lead the nation in numbers of people signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, but there are still millions in the state without health insurance. Some of the people most likely to remain uninsured are undocumented Californians. While they can buy health insurance with their own money, they are specifically excluded from receiving any benefits under the ACA. Community groups and non-profits in cities and towns across California work to fill in the gaps. One of them is Graton, a small town in Sonoma County, about 20 miles west of Santa Rosa.
