California’s Medicaid program, Medi-Cal, is vital to the health of millions of older adults and individuals with disabilities in the state, providing access to quality care for low-income patients. That care is threatened by proposals pending in Congress. In the third Issue Brief of a 12-part “Protect Medi-Cal Funding,” series, NHeLP Staff Attorney Alicia Kauk details how the House Republicans so-called American Health Care Act (AHCA) would harm the health of older adults and individuals with disabilities in California. Medi-Cal could be forced to make extreme cuts to services and enrollment because AHCA would slash federal Medicaid funding by more than $800 billion. AHCA “would seriously jeopardize the health and financial security of more than 13 million Californians,” Kauk writes in “Protect Medi-Cal Funding Series, Older Adults & Individuals with Disabilities in California.” See the first in the series, on children’s health, here.
