MISSION NEIGHBORHOOD HEALTH CENTER PRESS CONFERENCES LAUNCHES HEALTH4ALL KIDS TOUR!

Yesterday, Mission Neighborhood Health Center (MNHC) was the site for the kick off of Senator Lara's (author of SB4 expansion of Medi-Cal to all children)  Health4All Kids Tour, which will move throughout the state over the next few days.  San Francisco's representatives in the State Legislature,  Senator Mark Leno and Assemblymembers Phil Ting and David Chiu, spoke in strong support of the program.  Along with Brenda Storey, CEO of MNHC, and several advocates, a mother spoke of what it meant to her to be able to insure all of her children. Like many others, she had some children born in the United States and some who were not, and it pained her as a parent to have children within her own family treated differently.  The expansion begins this Monday, May 16, 2016.  Many children will be switched automatically on that date if they have been previously enrolled in limited scope Medi-Cal. For those who need help in enrolling, SFCCC and our partner clinics are ready to help!
