Lake County Agencies Launch Initiative To Raise Awareness About Insurance, Medi-Cal Benefits
The Lake County Department of Social Services has teamed up with the county probation department, sheriff's office and North Coast Opportunities to raise awareness about health coverage and Medi-Cal. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid plan. The two-year project recently was awarded $77,500 in grant funding to educate the more than 63,000 county residents, of whom about 20% are uninsured.
