Governor Newsom Signs Into Law Expansion of Medi-Cal to Undocumented Californians Age 50 and Over.

Fresno, CA...At a health clinic in Fresno County yesterday, Governor Gavin Newsom signed legislation making California the first state in the nation to expand full-scope Medi-Cal eligibility to low-income adults 50 years of age or older, regardless of immigration status – a major milestone in the state’s progress toward universal health coverage.


At Fresno health clinic, Governor Newsom signs health care trailer bill expanding Medi-Cal to undocumented Californians age 50 and over





The health care trailer bill, AB 133, makes bold changes toward a more equitable and prevention-focused approach to health care through expanded behavioral health initiatives supporting California youth and people with severe behavioral health challenges, including those experiencing homelessness; extending Medi-Cal eligibility for postpartum individuals; supporting continued telehealth flexibilities; and advancing the state’s innovative CalAIM initiative.

“We’re investing California’s historic surplus to accomplish transformative changes we’ve long dreamed of – including this historic Medi-Cal expansion to ensure thousands of older undocumented Californians, many of whom have been serving on the front lines of the pandemic, can access critical health care services,” said Governor Newsom. “I thank the Legislature for its steadfast partnership to bring California closer to universal health care coverage and advance comprehensive initiatives to ensure California’s communities come back from the pandemic stronger and healthier than before.”

Under AB 133, approximately 235,000 Californians aged 50 years and older are newly eligible for Medi-Cal, including preventive services, long-term care and In-Home Supportive Services. In 2019, California became the first state to extend Medi-Cal coverage to all eligible undocumented young adults up to the age of 26 and with today’s expansion, the state has the most inclusive health coverage for low-income persons in the country. AB 133 also extends the Medi-Cal postpartum care period from 60 days to 12 months without requiring a mental health diagnosis, including for eligible undocumented Californians.

Governor Newsom signed the legislation today at a Clinica Sierra Vista location in Fresno administering COVID-19 vaccinations to residents, in addition to serving the community’s primary medical, dental and behavioral health needs.

During his visit, the Governor highlighted the state’s multi-pronged strategy to reach communities with low vaccination rates and the first-in-the-nation measures announced yesterday to require all state workers and workers in health care and high-risk congregate settings to either show proof of full vaccination or be tested at least once per week. Local governments and businesses are encouraged to adopt similar measures amid the growing threat of the Delta variant.

Changing the life trajectory of children and youth in California, the health care trailer bill creates a prevention-focused behavioral health system in which all Californians age 25 and younger are supported and routinely screened for emerging and existing behavioral health needs – enabling them to grow up healthier, both physically and mentally. The initiative includes the creation of a statewide portal to connect young people with telehealth visits.

AB 133 implements an important component of the California Comeback Plan’s $12 billion homelessness package, creating the Behavioral Health Continuum Infrastructure Program at the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to expand treatment and housing options for all Californians, including people experiencing homelessness who struggle with the most acute behavioral health needs. AB 133 implements the Plan’s $2.2 billion investment for DHCS to provide competitive grants to local governments to construct, acquire and rehabilitate real estate assets or to invest in mobile crisis infrastructure to expand the community continuum of behavioral health treatment resources. The Plan’s total investments in this space constitute the biggest expansion in decades for clinically enhanced behavioral health housing.

In addition, AB 133 advances the state’s CalAIM initiative, a major transformation of the delivery of Medi-Cal to better manage risk and improve outcomes through whole person care approaches and addressing social determinants of health, and extends telehealth flexibilities allowed during the pandemic through December 2022, including payment parity for services delivered through audio-only modalities.

Clothing choice and sizing choice is turning out to be a clear signal of a mentally ill person. Squeezing into clothing several sizes too small, showing every roll and cottage cheese on your body is not and never will be attractive.

        I thought you broke the law you were arrested. How come California is rewarding people for breaking the law? Give them a shot, sure, but send them back across the border ASAP!

      In California, anyone 18 and over who applies for an ID or Drivers License is automatically registered to vote. Illegal immigrants are allowed to get a Drivers License in California. Do the math. Hi Jill.

      Get off your high horse. I happen to be part Mexican. Wetback specifically refers to illegal immigrants from Mexico. I have no problem with citizens here legally. It's the ones that come over illegally and do not pay taxes or all the other crap the rest of us working-class citizens put into the corrupt political system we live in. Maybe if our own citizens would take on real work like cleaning their own toilets, picking produce, etc. then it wouldn't encourage illegal immigration. And offering free medical care to illegal immigrants is definitely going to encourage more of them to come into this country illegally. Trump may be a Dick, but he had the right idea on building a wall.
