PRC To Offer Health Insurance To Illegal Aliens

What could possibly go wrong with this plan?

California becomes first state to offer health insurance to all undocumented immigrants

California will welcome the new year by becoming the first state to offer health insurance for all undocumented immigrants.

Starting Jan. 1, all undocumented immigrants, regardless of age, will qualify for Medi-Cal, California’s version of the federal Medicaid program for people with low incomes.

Previously, undocumented immigrants were not qualified to receive comprehensive health insurance but were allowed to receive emergency and pregnancy-related services under Medi-Cal as long as they met eligibility requirements, including income limits and California residency in 2014.

In 2015, undocumented children were able to join Medi-Cal under a bill signed by then-Gov. Jerry Brown. In 2019, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law an expansion of full-scope Medi-Cal access for young adults ages 19 through 25, regardless of citizenship or immigration status. Access was then further expanded to allow older adults aged 50 and older to receive full benefits, also regardless of immigration status.

The final expansion going into effect Jan. 1 will make approximately 700,000 undocumented residents between ages 26 and 49 eligible for full coverage, according to California State Sen. María Elena Durazo.

The wackos are calling this a “human right.” Are you happy to be paying for this, citizens of the People’s Republik Of California? Are you good with adding all those people to rolls, meaning it will be harder to get medial help, there will be longer waiting times? And the money has to come from somewhere, so, either taxes go up or other state services have to be cut. And you can expect premiums and deductibles to go up, because a lot of Medi-Cal is serviced at a loss, meaning that those who actually pay will pay more, perhaps 10%-20%.

And what happens when illegals get the word, and start streaming even more into California? Maybe Texas governor Greg Abbott starts shipping a ton into the PRC. But, you know what? The majority in the PRC voted for this, so, they should happily pony up, right? And not leave the state with all the insanity they voted for, right?

    This is awesome. The people of California are so generous. Good for them. Illegals with health problems should all go there to get treatments.

    • Professor Hale says:

      Heck, why just limit it to illegals. Every sick person on the planet should immediately make their way to California. Even people who like living in their own country. Certainly everyone living in Mexico and Canada. Does this cover dental work too?

    As long as Guv Newsom and the inmates of the PRC are paying.
    When my daughter in law was LEGALLY immigrating to the U.S., I had to verify that I would provide support if she required it and that she was not eligible if she needed government assistance. Our son was out of country at the time, so I got the call. She is now a productive citizen, paying taxes.
    Since most of these illegal aliens are not legitimate refugees but merely economic migrants, they are not eligible for federal benefits. So, if the PRC wants to fund them, go ahead.

    While the California democrats are going apoplectic worrying about President Trump getting elected and becoming a tyrant, Governor Newsom just told his subjects that they are going to have to pay for illegal’s health care. Not a peep out of California democrats. Odd.

    Governor Grease head has brought this along too. Going to be interesting when the two collide.
