Advocate Criticizes Proposed Cuts to Healthy Families
Wendy Lazarus, founder and co-president of the Children's Partnership, argues that plans to decrease eligibility and cut services under Healthy Families would affect all state residents. She explains that children who stand to lose coverage under the program will still require medical attention, but they will be forced to gain that coverage from higher-cost emergency departments. Healthy Families is California's Children's Health Insurance Program.
