"The law excludes illegal aliens from the federal mandate requiring individuals to buy health coverage or else be penalized. It also continues the law forcing medical providers to provide "emergency" services, regardless of one's ability to pay."

"Any discussion of legalization must include an understanding of the health care costs associated with legalization, including Medicaid. This is especially true in light of the expansion of Medicaid under health reform."
