What Does HR 3200 Mean for the Coverage of California’s Families

About one in every five Californians goes without health insurance, millions more have inadequate insurance, and countless more struggle with accumulating medical bills and discriminatory practices by insurers. The health reform bill in the House of Representatives, H.R. 3200, America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009, would provide virtually every Californian with affordable health insurance, either on the job, through a newly created Health Exchange, through a Public Option, from Medi- Cal or improved Medicare benefits.
