Calif. primary care for illegal aliens

Share this:


The California County Medical Services Program, which provides healthcare coverage for indigent adults in 35 rural California counties, has voted  to offer primary care to undocumented immigrants.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the news means that “Now 47 of the state’s 58 counties will provide some form of low-cost medical care to undocumented immigrants….This covers nearly half the state’s geography, primarily in the northern part of the state, but also in Imperial County, which borders Mexico. Some urban counties such as Los Angeles, Ventura and San Francisco, already provide healthcare to undocumented immigrants.”

The state’s many Federally Qualified Health Centers will presumably be called upon to treat many of these new, illegal-alien patients.
