Alameda County First in California to Expand Medicaid for HIV

Alameda County is the first county in California to expand Medicaid for low-income people with HIV, the Contra Costa Times reports. California is the first state to do so. The county is acting in advance of the national expansion, which is part of the Affordable Care Act. As a result of the expansion, uninsured, low-income people with HIV in Alameda do not have to wait until they are diagnosed with AIDS to qualify for California’s publicly funded health care program (known nationally as Medicaid but named Medical in the state). The county estimates the expansion will serve 600 people and will save $7.5 million.
