pdf California Implementing and Improving the ACA Expanding Medicaid

The Affordable Care Act promises to offer new health care options to millions of Californians, including over 1 million low-income Californians through the expansion of the state’s Medicaid program, also called Medi-Cal. Under the ACA and new enacted legislation in California, ABx1 1 (Perez) and SB x1 1 (Hernandez/Steinberg), reforms to the eligibility and enrollment processes will simplify and streamline Medi-Cal to make it easier to get enrolled and stay enrolled. Ultimately, California adopted a package that transforms the Medi-Cal program into health coverage for low-income Californians, with broad eligibility based on income, not assets.
