2020-2021 Proposed Budget: Opportunities and Impacts on Health Care Coverage and Cost Containment

Governor Gavin Newsom’s 2020-2021 State Budget outlined many opportunities to make California’s health system more accessible and affordable. The proposed $222 billion budget ($153 billion general fund) includes new, first-in-the-nation investments towards universal coverage and health care cost containment. Consumer advocates strongly support these proposals along with other efforts to expand coverage to the uninsured, and complementary efforts to address the cost of health plans, providers and prescription drugs.
