California Preparing for Reform

A new program launched by the state of California last summer is helping the state get ready for the 2014 expansion of Medicaid mandated by the Affordable Care Act.

The state’s Low-Income Health Program has enrolled more than 260,000 low-income people who do not currently qualify for Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program.  The cost of benefits for participants is shared by counties and federal government, and come 2014, all of those participants will automatically be enrolled in Medi-Cal when the Affordable Care Act Medicaid expansion takes effect.  At that time, the program will end

State officials hope this program will help lighten the burden of millions of Californians applying for Medi-Cal benefits in 2014.
