Editorial: State Must Fix Mammogram Program
A Santa Rosa Press Democrat editorial urges lawmakers to reopen the state's Every Woman Counts program to new enrollees and lift some eligibility restrictions. The program pays for breast cancer screening and diagnostic services for low-income uninsured women. The editorial states, "Given the magnitude of the state's deficit, now estimated at $19 billion, it's inevitable that valuable programs are going to suffer," adding, "But it's inexcusable when services aren't delivered because of program mismanagement, which appears to be the case with Every Woman Counts."
