Lessons from California: Fighting For Medicaid In 2017

Executive Summary

California’s Medicaid program, Medi-Cal, has significantly bettered the health care of tens of millions of Californians, and any cuts to the program would be devastating, writes NHeLP Staff Attorney Cori Racela in this month’s “Lessons from California.” The harm to Medi-Cal and statewide health care coverage could occur, Racela notes, if the incoming administration and next Congress can repeal the Affordable Care Act and limit Medicaid funding. Racela provides material, including the new NHeLP series, “Protect Medicaid Funding,” to help fight the forthcoming efforts to undue health care reform.
