California’s Healthy Kids programs fade as undocumented children gain access to Medi-Cal
WATSONVILLE >> Baby Sergio’s fever was spiking. His parents had just arrived here from Mexico with no papers, no money, no family, no friends.
The parents tried bringing down the fever, but it didn’t work. The baby started convulsing. An ambulance whisked the terrified young family to a hospital. There, a social worker met with them.
“Don’t worry, señora,” the social worker told Maria as she signed Sergio up for a program called Healthy Kids. She handed the anxious mother an insurance card.
Maria believes that little card saved her son’s life repeatedly over the next several years, allowing him to have regular checkups and paying for crucial surgeries and medical care.
“I am so thankful,” Maria said again and again through tears in a recent interview. “I feel so blessed by what they did for my son.” She requested that her family be identified only by first names because they are in the U.S. illegally.
