California counties have a statutory requirement to provide health services to low-income and indigent people with no other source of care, including a population known as medically indigent adults. Due to variations in local resources and policies, county-sponsored programs for the medically indigent differ throughout the state in terms of their eligibility rules and the scope of benefits provided. This issue brief, which is based on a survey of county representatives, attempts to document the experience of select California counties.
