Care 4 All California Coalition Launches Health Care Package
March 22, 2018
Last week the Care 4 All California Coalition launched a wide-ranging package of health care-related legislation. The coalition, led by Health Access and the Service Employees International Union, is seeking to advance the gains made under the Affordable Care Act. Their recently announced legislative priorities include finding ways to increase the universality and affordability of health care, reducing costs and prices, and patient protections.
While the coalition does support some specific bills that are currently under discussion in the legislature, others aspects of their priorities remain broad principles. According to the CSAC Platform, Counties support achieving universal health care coverage and any efforts toward this goal should simplify the health care system for recipients, providers, and employers. As such, CSAC will continue to closely monitor and engage with the coalition and any efforts to make continued reforms to the health care system in the state.
