The Sacramento Bee and Axios are reporting that California is expanding healthcare access to undocumented immigrants.
“Lawmakers want to use an “extraordinary” state budget surplus to expand health care options for undocumented people while stockpiling billions of dollars in reserves in anticipation of an economic downturn, according to documents the Legislature’s Budget Conference Committee released.”
“Details: State Legislature Democrats agreed as part of a $213 billion state budget approval Sunday to expand California’s Medicaid program to eligible low-income 19- to 25-year-olds, covering 90,000 more people at a cost of $98 million, per AP.
