The state plans to take nine million dollars out of Sacramento County’s health budget next year.

It says counties won’t need as much money because uninsured people in regional health programs will move over to state-managed Medi-Cal under the Affordable Care Act.

Ann Edwards is a chief county executive with Sacramento. She says there will be significant savings on health care next year, but there may not be enough money to treat the remaining uninsured.
