Governor Brown says expanding Medi-Cal will mean the state will be relieving counties of a financial burden: paying for health care for the uninsured. “We don’t want to pay twice. So where there is funding that is now properly… something the state outta use, we’ll do it,” said Brown during his brief speech on Tuesday. California Health and Human Services Secretary Diana Dooley says the budget also proposes a way the state will seek to capture money counties currently use to treat the uninsured.
