Healthy Families | KCET
The State of California has been hacking its budget due to major revenue shortages this year. One item on the chopping block is Healthy Families, a statewide health plan for low-income families. If this happens, millions of children could be out of health insurance. We went to visit AltaMed Health Services, a non-profit health insurance provider that services many of these children in the Southern California area, to see what these bugdet cuts could mean for our health system and families in general.
"Our emergency care facilities would be flooded...and would ultimately cause a collapse in our health care system," claims Castulo de la Rocha, the President and CEO of AltaMed.
