California unveils new spending plan for the next year

Low-income immigrants in California can see their medical costs paid in a new budget for groups that are not currently covered.

This week, Governor Gavin Newsom announced a proposal with tax cuts, promising to pay a full range of Medi-Cal compensation for individuals, regardless of their legal status.

If it becomes law, the proposal excludes Medi-Cal eligibility by age and legal status and applies to anyone who meets income requirements. Coverage will expand to approximately 700,000 people.

According to a study by the California Institute of Public Policy, about 66% of Californians have shown support for providing health insurance to undocumented individuals.

“If this proposal is upheld, California is ready to become the first state in the country to achieve universal access to healthcare,” Newsom said.
