Governor Signs Medi-Cal 2020 Waiver Bill
July 28, 2016
Governor Brown signed SB 815 by Senators Hernandez and Pro tem de León, which implements portions of California’s new Medicaid Section 1115 “Medi-Cal 2020” Waiver. This new waiver, approved in December 2015, builds on the successes California has achieved in expanding coverage, transforming care, and improving health outcomes. AB 1568, by Assembly Member Bonta, which implements the other portions of the new Medi-Cal 2020 Waiver, was chaptered by the Secretary of State earlier in July. CSAC supported both SB 815 and AB 1568.
