More Than 360K Californians Insured Under State Program
More than 360,000 California residents now are receiving coverage under "The Bridge to Reform" program, which aims to implement the federal health reform law's Medicaid expansion ahead of schedule. State Department of Health Care Services spokesperson Norman Williams said that even if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns the reform law, the Bridge to Reform program still has helped improve health care infrastructure at the local level. The Santa Cruz Sentinel article was produced by the California HealthCare Foundation's Center for Health Reporting. The Center is supported by a grant from CHCF, which publishes California Healthline.
