CCHA’s 2022 Legislative Priorities Include Investments in Health Equity

This year, CCHA is requesting that the California Governor and Legislature take steps to increase access to equitable health care.

Medi-Cal provides coverage to over half of the State’s children and those who rely on Medi-Cal are disproportionately children of color.  These children have been shortchanged by decades of underfunding in the program.  California cannot make progress towards health equity if Medi-Cal continues to underfund care for the most vulnerable children.

CCHA has joined with the California Hospital Association and others to ask the Governor and Legislature to address these systemic funding inequities in the budget.
