The new federal health care reform law will benefit California and its diverse immigrant communities. However, many Californians and their immigrant family members, despite working, still lack affordable health care.  In order to reap real benefits from the new law, CIPC is working to ensure that policy-makers implement health reform in California in a way that works for all Californians.

Health Care Reform: Implementation in California

"Open Enrollment Period for Healthcare Reform: FAQs"- Fall 2013

As the Open Enrollment period for Healthcare Reform (known as "Obamacare") and the state insurance marketplace, "Covered California", kicked off October 1, 2013, CIPC produced a health information publication to address Frequently Asked Questions as well as a short Guide to Public Benefits for DACA recipients in California. 

"Making the Affordable Care Act Work for Immigrants in California"- Spring 2012

CIPC is closely monitoring California's implementation of the new health law, including legislation and regulations being developed in Sacramento. In partnership with our allies at the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network and its Having Our Say Coalition, the Western Center on Law and Poverty, and Health Access California, we are working to ensure that immigrants and communities of color are not left behind.
