NURSING HOMES: Bill Would Limit Care for Undocumented Aliens
The Legislature Thursday approved a bill that would "cap the number of disabled illegal immigrants who can stay in nursing homes at state expense at 385." Currently there are some 330 such individuals in nursing homes being paid for by the state. The measure would also "limit the expansion of health care coverage for some low-income Californians" (Morain/Ingram, Los Angeles Times, 7/16).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
