Under
the new law SB 104 California will offer government subsidized health
benefits for undocumented immigrants under the age of 26. Previously
only undocumented immigrant children could apply. It’s part of new
funding for MediCal. Gov. Gavin Newsom says there will be “An
additional $450 a month in subsidies reducing premiums by 25%. No
state in America does that.” Sarah Dar from the California
Immigrant Policy Center says this will make a healthier community.
“It’s a population that by and large is not getting regular
care, not regularly visiting the doctor. This is going to change all
of that – regular doctor visits, preventative care, checkups.”
