SB 10 & 1332 Waiver
On June 10, 2016 Governor Brown signed SB 10 (Lara) due to the immense work of the Health For All Coalition and courageous community members. SB 10 (Lara) directs the state to apply for a waiver under Section 1332 of the Affordable Care Act allowing undocumented immigrants and DACA recipients to purchase health coverage through Covered California; though they would not be eligible to receive subsidies. 1332 Waiver was submitted to the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and was in 30-day comment period. However the Waiver was rescinded due to lack of confidence in the new Administration and the best interest in California’s flexibility to provide coverage to undocumented Californians.
