Expanding Access to Meaningful Health Coverage & High-Value Care

Building on California’s Successful Expansion of Meaningful Health Coverage 

California has been a national leader in successfully implementing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) — reducing the number of uninsured Californians by more than half. Ninety-three percent of Californians now have comprehensive health insurance and access to care.

Since the ACA’s implementation, community safety net hospitals have provided comprehensive care to 1.2 million newly enrolled Medi-Cal patients annually.  Community safety net hospitals also serve as essential community providers in Covered California’s health exchange networks.

PEACH is committed to working collaboratively at the local, state and federal levels to expand coverage to the 3 million remaining uninsured Californians, increasing affordability, and improving access to high-value, integrated physical and behavioral health care.
