I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Such a valuable source of what’s happening in city where we live. Objective reporting that informs us and allows us to come to our own conclusions.

Under 26? You may soon qualify for new health insurance benefits

A new federal law going into effect at the end of this month will let young people be covered by their families' health insurance plans until their 26th birthdays, Deborah Schoch and Diya Chacko report in the Pasadena Star-News. That would allow many young people to be supported for an additional seven years.
 
Schoch and Chacko work for the newly launched California HealthCare Foundation Center for Health Reporting. Like the Alhambra Source, it's a project affiliated with USC and shares an office space with us at The Alhambra on Fremont and Mission.
 
In the article, Schoch and Chako also profile some area young people's approaches to health insurance. Among them is Victor Gonzalez, a 24-year-old laboratory assistant at Platt College in Alhambra. "Gonzales needs health insurance for himself, his wife Alba and their 5-year-old son Victor Jr., but can't afford a family plan after rent, bills and student loan payments," Chako reports. "His mother is on MediCal and his father is uninsured, so he would not qualify for the new federal mandate allowing others in his age group to go back on a family insurance plan."
 
"I'm just lucky now to work in a place with doctors on staff I can ask for health advice," Gonzalez told Chako.
