ALL Californians.

CA Office of Health Care Affordability (OHCA)

Share your health care cost story with the Office of Health Care Affordability

Health consumers are being forced to make tough decisions between paying for health care and affording other necessities like rent and food. This results in many Californians skipping or delaying the care they need – putting their health at risk.

In January of this year, the staff of OHCA recommended setting the statewide cost growth target at 3%, aligning with the average growth in median income. This means that health care costs will not grow more than what Californians can afford. Reducing growth rates will save Californians thousands of dollars over time. Now, they need to hear from you. Use our letter tool to submit your public comment by March 11 to let OHCA know why you need affordable health care!
