State switching low-income children to Medi-Cal care
Napa Valley Register

One out of eight children in Napa County will have their medical coverage switched to Medi-Cal next year, as the state attempts to balance its budget by offering a lower-cost service, according to local officials.

Some 4,231 Napa County children currently covered through Healthy Families will be transitioned to the state’s Medi-Cal program, which has traditionally served very low-income individuals and families.
