Contra Costa County, CA, doctors worried over budget

San Francisco Chronicle, March 12, 2009
Dozens of doctors from Contra Costa County, CA's public hospital rallied in Martinez to protest a cost-cutting plan that would slash medical services for 5,500 undocumented immigrants. Under the plan, adult patients seeking medical help under the county's low-income Basic Health Care Program would have to provide proof of legal immigration status. County health officials believe their proposal, could save the county's overtaxed medical system $6 million a year.
