Health Care Reforms May Take Effect in 2014

On Tuesday, a presentation was heard by the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors, which included plans of bringing reforms in health care, a recent report has unveiled.

Nancy Stark, Health and Human Services legislative analyst, informed the board that a number of Patient Protection Affordable Care Act provisions would take effect in 2014. It is being said that the local changes may come into effect when the national health care legislation acts out.

She has affirmed that Medi-Cal program of California would be expanded. The program would be covering all those people, who are below the national poverty level's 138%.

According to her statement, the 138% level is equivalent to $32,000 per year income for a family of four. An individual's $15,000 income a year also equates the same.

The additional costs of enrolling or administering would mean Medi-Cal would either go in a county-based way or by way of state-based management. Stark has further said that the expansion of the Medi-Cal program would mean some 7,000 people would be eligible for the same in Humboldt County.

However, the office of California State Legislative Analyst has stated that permanent changes in county practices should be delayed unless and until the health care reform effects come into picture.
