Health for All Kids Act expected to serve 185,000 children

The Health for All Kids Act, signed into law last year, allows undocumented children under the age of 19 to apply for health coverage under Medi-Cal. Advocates and state legislators appeared in Coachella recently to promote insurance enrollment under the new law, and to lobby for similar legislation to promote health equality. “What we’re doing here in California is historic and I know it’s going to resonate across the country and other states are going to follow. This is a tremendous victory, but this is just the beginning, and we have to move forward to ensure that undocumented adults can receive healthcare.” Find out more on Coachella Unincorporated.
