State Legislation

Each year, CAPH actively follows 40-50 health care related bills that could have an impact on California’s public health care systems, health care providers that provide high-quality culturally competent care to millions of Californians, including a large number of the state’s Medi-Cal population and remaining uninsured.

Below are the high-priority bills CAPH is supporting for the 2022 legislative session:

AB 1900 (Arambula): Medi-Cal: Income Level for Maintenance: This bill would make it easier for low income elderly and people with disabilities to qualify for and maintain coverage in Medi-Cal. CAPH has submitted a letter of support.

AB 1995 (Arambula): Medi-Cal: Premiums, Contributions, and Copayments: This bill ensures low-income Californians can access needed health care services by eliminating Medi-Cal premiums and copayments for children, pregnant people, and people with disabilities. CAPH has submitted a letter of support.
