Extra Edition: California’s Open Enrollment.

While most uninsured Americans cite cost as the main barrier to health coverage, one program is attempting to reduce out-of-pocket expenses of people in California by offering an unprecedented amount of financial help. With the slogan “Closing the Gap,” California is reaching out to uninsured residents to sign up for health insurance as part of the new Open Enrollment period. It focuses on those who do not qualify for Medi-Cal or have lost their coverage at work. Will more uninsured Californians respond to the call?

Guest: Patricia Izquierdo, Spokesperson, Covered California, Los Angeles, CA.

World Diabetes Day. On World Diabetes Day today, medical experts and specialists reach out to the community to promote awareness of the risks of the disease, who is most vulnerable, how to prevent it and what to know about family and loved ones with diabetes. What information and services are available to children and adults with Type 1, Type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, and prediabetes?

Guest: Guadalupe Bravo, Registered Nurse and Quality Coordinator, Diabetes Education Center, Natividad Medical Center Salinas, CA.
