Will undocumented immigrants avoid new state health benefits?

By Virginia Gaglianone and Yesenia Amaro, The USC Center for Health Journalism Collaborative More than anything else, Claudia Navarro wanted health insurance for her children when she arrived in the United States. Navarro’s daughter has spina bifida — a congenital condition her doctors in Mexico said would kill the girl within a year. But Navarro didn’t give up on her baby. Instead, she brought her two young children to the U.S. to seek medical help. She obtained limited Medi-Cal benefits for he...

To shore up Obamacare in California, Newsom wants to try an individual mandate

By Sophia Bollag, Michael Finch II and Sammy Caiola, The USC Center for Health Journalism Collaborative When Kate Green, calculated her health care costs last year, it just didn’t add up for her to stay insured. The 30-year-old worker in a real estate referral company had signed up for the lowest-cost plan possible, but it came with high out-of-pocket costs. Premiums ate up money Green had planned on spending to pay off car and college loans. The final straw: a $1,200 doctor bill for a minor kne...

California’s First 5 programs evolve as smoking declines and tobacco taxes go away

An otherwise welcome advance in public health — the widespread reduction in smoking —  is having the perverse effect of driving down tobacco tax revenue that, for a generation, has supported some California programs aimed at early childhood education and health. Still, proponents of the programs financed by tobacco taxes are finding new ways to support California’s youngest residents. Proposition 10, which took effect Jan. 1, 1999, placed a 50 cent tax on tobacco products and created state and c...

A bill that would replace the existing health care system with a new one run by a single payer—specifically, the state government—and paid for with taxpayer money remains parked in the Assembly, with no sign of moving ahead. An effort by activists to recall Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon for shelving the bill has gone dormant. And an initiativ...
