Affordable Care Act Medicaid Expansion Options
The expansion of Medi-Cal to childless adults is optional under the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Governor Brown has committed to pursuing the expansion and outlined two options in his 2013-14 budget: A state-based approach and a county-based approach.
The California Health and Human Services Agency, in partnership with the Departments of Finance, Health Care Services, and Social Services, is convening a limited series of meetings to obtain stakeholder input on the expansion options. The links below will take you to information about the options and to materials for each meeting.
More information will follow regarding upcoming meetings.
