On May 7, 2018, California Assembly members voted to support and prioritize a package worth $1 billion in new health care investments to expand Medi-Cal coverage and increase affordability assistance to those purchasing health plans through Covered California and the individual insurance market. This is a major step towards bringing the state closer to a more universal and affordable health care system. Assembly member Arambula said, “Building on the 6 months’ work of the Assembly’s Select Committee on Health Care Delivery Systems and Universal Coverage, this funding package will be a major step forward in California taking the lead to expand coverage, increase access, address workforce capacity issues, improve accountability and transparency and make health care more affordable for the middle class.” CAMFT will keep its members informed as the spending packages move forward.
