According to FOX Business report, California is doing something big for healthcare. They want to give free health insurance to more than 700,000 undocumented immigrants aged 26-49. Governor Gavin Newsom announced this plan in May. It’s an expansion of the existing coverage for those under 26, starting on January 1, 2024, and it aims to make healthcare more inclusive under the state’s Medi-Cal coverage.

But, there’s a big cost to this healthcare plan—$2.6 billion every year, according to State Senator María Durazo. And California is already facing a major money problem, with a budget deficit growing to over $54 billion from June. This comes as people and businesses are leaving the state, leading to California’s first-ever population decline in 2020.

California’s plan is a big experiment that mixes healthcare changes, money issues, and people leaving. What happens here will likely affect talks about healthcare, budgets, and where people choose to live all across the country.
