California: Alameda County First to Expand Medical Coverage to People With HIV, AIDS
July 10, 2012
Alameda County is California's first to let low-income people with HIV qualify for Medicaid (known in the state as Medi-Cal) before they progress to AIDS. The state is leading the nation in the reform of the publicly funded health care program under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a transition that will not be completed until 2014, said Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Oakland).
