PUBLIC NEWS SERVICE: California Makes Big Gains in Reducing Number of Uninsured Children

Kristen Golden Testa, California health director with the Santa Monica-based nonprofit The Children’s Partnership, says the situation will get even better next year once a groundbreaking new state law to help undocumented children goes into effect.

“All low-income children will be able to enroll in Medi-Cal regardless of their immigration status,” she says. “This will mean an additional 170,000 children will have insurance.”

Because California has the biggest population in the country, Testa says gains in the Golden State will make a “big dent” in the national rate of uninsured children.

    I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with
    the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it
    yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see
    a nice blog like this one these days.
