California led the way in implementing the Affordable Care Act, but many Californians still do not have care, and even more are paying too much for the care they have. We are working toward health care access for every Californian by…
- Advocating for improvements to health programs that serve low-income Californians
- Enforcing health consumer rights and protections
- Expanding Medi-Cal to cover ALL Californians who need it, and ensuring that Medi-Cal plans and providers deliver equitable, quality care
- Shoring up state health care policies to protect Californians from federal attacks on our health care system
Western Center is a member of the Health Consumer Alliance, a partnership of consumer assistance programs operated by community-based legal services organizations. Its common mission is to help Californians obtain essential health care.
