Essential California: The devastation from Northern California's firestorms comes into grim focus

L.A. Now Live: Discuss expanded Medi-Cal's ambivalent new recipients

Join Times staff writer Eryn Brown for a discussion at 9 a.m. Monday on the complexities -- financial and emotional -- that arise for many Californians who now qualify for Medi-Cal under Obamacare.

The expansion of Medicaid -- called Medi-Cal in California -- has been touted as a great success of the Affordable Care Act.

Brown reported recently that while for many who are needy, learning they're eligible for the usually free program is a relief, but the news isn't wholly welcome for others.

During the chat, Brown will discuss the expansion of Medi-Cal in California and how it's being received by residents.

Send in any comments or questions you have and we'll get to as many of them as we can.
