California Legislature Passes Medi-Cal Expansion as Part of State Budget

June 17, 2013

On Saturday, the California Legislature passed final legislation to expand Medi-Cal as a part of a broader state budget agreement for FY 2013-14. The Medi-Cal program will expand in 2014 to provide health coverage to an additional 1 to 1.6 million Californians. The eligibility expansion was a part of the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA). ITUP applauds the Legislature for its work to advance this important expansion of coverage in California.
