Cannella: California Should Bring Back Healthy Families
In a Modesto Bee opinion piece, state Sen. Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres) writes that when the Legislature last year "approved the elimination of the Healthy Families program," lawmakers "decried the loss of a program that, for years, has been viewed as a success, providing nearly a million California children with affordable health care." According to Cannella, the plan to transition Healthy Families beneficiaries to Medi-Cal managed care plans has been marked by "stories of people who cannot find the doctors, specialists or treatments they require in a timely manner." He concludes, "This session, I am committed to do all I can to reverse the elimination of Healthy Families."
