Reports, Policy Briefs, and Other Resources

The House and Senate Republicans are fast-tracking a bill that would repeal the ACA and strip health care away from 24 million Americans including millions of Californians. The new plan, the “American Health Care Act” (AHCA) will be devastating to the health of California seniors, children and communities of color.  

President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan are threatening to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), undoing the tremendous progress California has made in reducing disparities in access to mental health care services. Prior to the ACA, Latinos and African Americans who sought help for mental health or substance use services were less likely to receive necessary treatment. While these disparities persist, with more individuals insured, low-income Californians and communities of color are better able to access vital behavioral health services. But all of these gains are now at substantial risk!

President Trump and Congressional leadership are preparing to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), eliminating access to health care for millions of Californians. Prison and jail inmates experience a higher rate of chronic disease than the general population.

The Prevention and Public Health Fund (PPHF), created in 2010, with the passage of the ACA, is aimed at reducing long-term health costs by supporting programs that seek to address many chronic diseases that are easily preventable. House Republicans are fast-tracking the American Health Care Act, which eliminates the PPHF.

Communities of color, the majority of the newly insured under Affordable Care Act (ACA), will be most negatively impacted from national efforts to repeal the law. Prior to the ACA communities of color, who made up just over half of all residents, were three-quarters (74%) of California’s uninsured. The ACA significantly helped to close the coverage gap, cutting uninsurance rates by more than half for Asian Americans and African Americans between 2013 and 2015 and reducing rates for Latinos at slightly lower rates.
