Sonoma County expands health coverage for undocumented children
Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Sonoma County is now closer than ever to achieving a 15-year-old goal of enrolling every single child in the county into comprehensive health care coverage — regardless of the child’s immigration status.

On Monday, county staff will begin upgrading health care coverage for about 1,000 undocumented children currently enrolled in a restricted form of Medi-Cal, California’s version of the federal Medicaid program. These children are currently limited to emergency medical services.
