Children’s Health Coverage
AB 32 was introduced by Sen. Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) to extend health coverage to children in California. The measure would streamline the enrollment process for Medi-Cal and Healthy Families and call for enrolling all eligible children in those programs. The bill would provide temporary financial assistance to local Children's Health Initiative programs, which would serve as a model for a statewide health care coverage program (Bill text, 12/4/06).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
