- Medi-Cal Expansion
CIPC is working with partners across the state to pass this vital measure which will protect families and communities across the state from Trump’s cruel deportation machine. The bill limits the entanglement of police and Sheriffs in painful deportations and will also keep our public schools, hospitals and health facilities, courthouses, and libraries safe and accessible to all Californians. The CA Values Act passed the Senate on April 3, 2017 and now heads to the Assembly.
- Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Access to Medi-Cal Coverage
DACA recipients and undocumented people are excluded from purchasing health coverage and receiving tax credits through the Affordable Care Act. Therefore, they cannot buy and are not mandated to have health insurance through California’s marketplace, Covered California. However, in California low-income DACA recipients can sign up for full-scope Medi-Cal, if they meet income requirements.
