Stanislaus County clinics expect wave of people seeking care
Modesto Bee

Officials who manage safety-net clinics in Stanislaus County said they expect to see a wave of people seeking health care with the federally funded Medi-Cal expansion next year. These county residents have contact with the local health system when they walk into an emergency room or use a health clinic to take care of an urgent medical need. But they are expected to seek health care more often once enrolled in Medi-Cal, especially those with diabetes or other ongoing medical conditions.
