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

Governor Gavin Newsom’s May Revision of the California 2020-21 State Budget announced on May 14, 2020 includes significant cuts to health, education, and other vital services in order to address the budget deficit caused by the COVID-19 crisis. After starting the year with a surplus and significant investments proposed in health and human services, the revised budget seeks to close the now estimated $54 billion state deficit with a combination of rainy day funds, deferrals, and deep cuts to programs.
