Everyone can have insurance under the Affordable Care Act

Here's a link to Covered California:


See, especially, Medical -

"Medi-Cal is free or low-cost health coverage for children and adults with limited income and resources.

Who can qualify for Medi-Cal?

Medi-Cal covers low-income adults, families with children, seniors, persons with disabilities, children in foster care as well as former foster youth up to age 26, and pregnant women."

Don't give up - get help!
