Wendy Lazarus, President of the Children’s Partnership and one of the top children’s advocates and leaders in the nation.
A broad coalition of health care officials and advocates will come together in Los Angeles to urge state elected officials to move quickly to expand Medi-Cal or risk losing hundreds of millions of federal dollars for California.
Action has stalled on a critical piece of California’s implementation of the Affordable Care Act. If legislation to expand Medi-Cal is not signed into law in the next 6 weeks, over one million low-income, working people will be left without coverage as healthcare reform is implemented. For each month of delay, California will lose hundreds of millions of federal dollars.
