Ventura County healthcare officials estimate 50,000 county residents will become eligible for state-sponsored healthcare coverage after last week’s Supreme Court ruling upholding President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act of 2010.

The June 28 ruling declared Obama’s signature healthcare reform law constitutional and added that individual states could decide whether they want to participate in the optional expansion of Medicaid—the federal health insurance program for no- or low-income residents.
