pdf Remaining Uninsured Joint Statement

California has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity not only to expand health insurance to millions with a successful implementation of the Affordable Care Act, but also to ensure that *every* Californian—including those left uninsured—has basic access to care and coverage. With existing health care resources, we have the opportunity to ensure at least safety-net care and coverage for *all* Californians, including the remaining uninsured, but only if we safeguard funds for the county safety net, put in place the right incentives, and use our funds efficiently, effectively, with transparency and accountability. Decisions made in the next few weeks could fulfill this goal and vision, or could lock out our fellow Californians from coverage and let current Low-Income Health Programs expire. We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity this year to get this right, and to continue our commitment to care for all Californians.
