California Proposes Health Plan Expanding Coverage for Undocumented Youth

HeadlineJan 09, 2019

In California, Governor Gavin Newsom introduced a healthcare proposal on his first day in office that would strengthen the Affordable Care Act and expand healthcare access for undocumented youth to the age of 26. California’s Medicaid program currently covers undocumented youth up to the age of 19. The plan would also restore the individual mandate in California, which was revoked in the 2017 Republican tax bill.
