Kaiser Permanente Donates $80K to Los Angeles School District to Boost Enrollment in Health Insurance Programs
Kaiser Permanente recently donated $80,000 through its Cares for Kids program to the Los Angeles Unified School District to help boost student enrollment in low-cost and free health insurance programs, the Los Angeles Times reports. The funds will be used to help enroll children in Medi-Cal, Healthy Families or in a Kaiser health plan. The Times reports that approximately 1,500 low-income students, including 500 children who are not eligible for state programs because they are not U.S. citizens, will benefit from the funds. This is the second year Kaiser has donated money to the district (Los Angeles Times, 1/8).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
