Story Collection

Since passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), over 5 million newly eligible Californians have gained access to health coverage, a majority communities of color through Medi-Cal and Covered California. 

But all of these gains are now at risk. Please share your story about how the ACA has helped your community member. Your voice matters, and it will be what helps preserve this progress.

Budget

On Thursday, May 11th, Governor Jerry Brown released his $180 billion FY 2017-18 revised budget plan. Despite a budget surplus, the spending plan includes only modest spending increases. 

Federal Budget Update

On Tuesday, May 23rd, the White House unveiled its $4.1 trillion FY 18 proposed budget. Despite earlier assurances that Medicaid funding would be preserved, the president’s budget eviscerates the program with a proposed $616 billion cut over 10 years, roughly on par with the magnitude of cuts sought in the American Health Care Act (AHCA).

New Fact Sheet on ACA

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.
