Fresno County To Revise Eligibility for Indigent Care
Fresno County Superior Court Judge Jeff Hamilton recently ordered Fresno County to develop new eligibility standards for indigent medical care. Previously, the county set an upper income limit of $1,788 monthly for residents to qualify for indigent care. Hamilton ruled that the limit did not take into account the health care costs that could be incurred from serious medical conditions.
