Wider health-care coverage in California
Lompoc Record

The California Universal Healthcare Act (SB 810) will provide Californians with a single-payer system, similar to Medicare, that will enable all residents of the state to receive comprehensive health-care services, including prescriptions, hospice, mental health treatment, vision and dental care. A single-payer agency will pay all health-care bills using reasonable, tax-supported financing that would replace premiums, co-pays, deductibles and other out-of-pocket expenses currently being charged by insurance companies.
