Thanks to national health care reform, 3.7 million children, seniors and working families now have access to health care in California. And with expanded Medi-Cal funding, a third of California’s population can now receive the affordable care they need.
More children have access to preventative care, increasing their school attendance. More adults are able to get the coverage and medication they need, creating a stronger and more efficient workforce. More seniors are receiving diagnoses and treating diseases earlier, minimizing expensive emergency room visits. Overall, Californians’ quality of life has improved.
We’ve come so far in recent years in expanding health care coverage for millions of vulnerable Californians, and we must continue to defend our progress. Seasoned and new leaders in Sacramento and Washington D.C. alike should protect this progress for healthier communities and a stronger economy.
Sign our pledge if you agree, and stand up for quality care for all Californians.
