Northern California Counties Work To Improve Rural Care
Health care officials in Del Norte and Humboldt counties are vying to improve rural medical services as part of the state's County Medical Services Program. The program is made up of a 34-county consortium that has applied to participate in California's "Bridge to Health Reform" Medi-Cal waiver, which offers federal matching funds for public health expansion efforts statewide. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. These reports were produced by the California HealthCare Foundation's Center for Health Reporting. CHCF publishes California Healthline.
