Santa Maria Times

The San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors will discuss how to deal with the increased responsibilities of the Affordable Care Act when it meets at 9 a.m. Tuesday in the County Government Center, 1055 Monterey St., San Luis Obispo.

One of the key provisions of the Affordable Care Act will force states to expand their health care systems.

San Luis Obispo County expects between 12,000 and 19,000 previously uninsured residents to be eligible for Medi-Cal, although all aren’t expected to enroll, according to a county staff report.
