Millions of Californians lose healthcare, access, group says

San Francisco Chronicle, January 8, 2010
About 3 million poor Californians lost health benefits or access to healthcare, and thousands more lost their jobs due to state budget cuts imposed six months ago, according to a report released by the health advocacy group Health Access California. The report analyzed the effects of nearly $2 billion in annual funding cuts from the state's healthcare system. In July, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a budget that shaved a total of $24 billion from the state's annual spending plan. The report cited a $134 million loss in federal matching funds because of cuts to the state's Medi-Cal program.
