Serving The (Still) Uninsured / by Lisa Morehouse | May 16, 2014

Serving The (Still) Uninsured

The Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, resulted in millions more people being signed up for health insurance. But some folks are still uninsured, especially the undocumented. Reporter Lisa Morehouse takes us to places in California where the struggle to care for–and insure–undocumented Californians is still going on.
