Healthcare options improve for undocumented Californians

Undocumented residents in Los Angeles, many of whom were unaware that they were eligible for health care through county-subsidized programs, can now get free care from clinics participating in My Health L.A., a program that serves low-income people who don’t qualify for other public insurance programs. The policy varies among counties, but advocates are fighting hard to get healthcare for all undocumented Californians. “When we talk about health for all, there is a big population of people who normally aren’t considered under the ‘all.'” A detailed story is on Boyle Heights Beat.
