HEALTH FOR ALL & IMMIGRANT HEALTH POLICY

As part of our advocacy work to ensure that California creates a healthcare system that works for everyone, CIPC will continue to support the “Health For All” Act, SB 1005, set to be reintroduced by Senator Ricardo Lara (D- Huntington Park/Long Beach). Under the proposal, immigrants who don’t have health care would either be able to pay an affordable price for health insurance in a statewide marketplace that mirrors Covered CA, or -for low-income families- get regular medical care through the state’s Medi-Cal program.

HEALTHCARE REFORM AND IMPLEMENTATION IN CALIFORNIA

Starting November 15th, 2014, the second period of Open Enrollment has begun for the Affordable Care Act (known as “Obamacare”) and the state insurance marketplace, “Covered California”. CIPC will continue to closely monitor its implementation in California, 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.

Open Enrollment into Covered CA and Medi-Cal begins November 15th, 2014!
