Sacramento County program offers health care for poor
Modesto Bee

Sacramento became the latest county Wednesday to unveil a medical program to provide care for some of its poorest residents until the Affordable Care Act takes effect in 2014. Rep. Doris Matsui, D-Sacramento, who is credited for her role in supporting the effort, told public officials and medical industry leaders at a south-area clinic that the Low Income Health Program will provide a “bridge to health care reform, ensuring Sacramento County residents have the coverage they need until full implementation” of the federal act.
