Covered California

On July 31, 2014, Covered California announced the rates for insurance coverage for 2015 ahead of this fall’s Open Enrollment period. While some feared large premium increases, the average increase is just 4.2% over 2014 rates.

State Budget

On Friday, June 20th, Governor Jerry Brown signed the $156.3 billion FY 2014-15 budget. The budget includes state spending for the Medi-Cal program to accommodate the successful outreach and enrollment efforts that have resulted in over a million new enrollees into the program, a majority from communities of color.

Legislation

CPEHN is tracking several bills that will help improve the health of communities of color in California. Check back for updates on the progress of this important legislation.

Cultural and Linguistic Competency

Over 40 percent of Californians speak a language other than English at home. Ensuring that all patients receive information and services in a language they understand helps improve the quality of care, reduce complications, and increase patient satisfaction.
