Fresno Bee

Under a state budget agreement reached Thursday, about 41,000 low-income children in the central San Joaquin Valley who are covered by the state’s Healthy Families insurance plan will be moved onto Medi-Cal, the state-federal insurance program for the poor.

The move of about 900,000 children statewide onto Medi-Cal will save California about $13 million in 2012-13.
