Litigating Aggressively for Low-Income People

Health Equity Blog Series
The Coronavirus pandemic has upended life for people across the United States and the world. But the experience and severity are not equal. NHeLP’s health equity blog series focuses on the grave health inequities plaguing this country. The time is now – let’s make this the tipping point in addressing racial health inequities!

California’s Medi-Cal program provides free or low-cost health care coverage to more than 14 million low-income adults, families with children, seniors, persons with disabilities, pregnant women, children in foster care, and former foster youth up to age 26.
Leading the Way in California
The National Health Law Program advocates for progressive California health care policy, including litigation involving Medicaid eligibility and services, managed health care delivery system issues, health reform implementation, and reproductive health.
