Covering the uninsured left behind by ACA

Millions of Californians will remain uninsured after the signature reforms of the Affordable Care Act roll out in 2014.

Legislators are proposing an employer-funded trust to insure many of those who will likely fall through the cracks of the Affordable Care Act. Assemblyman Manuel Perez introduced Assembly Bill 175, which would establish a trust fund, paid for by employers, private donors and philanthropic organizations, to provide comprehensive health insurance coverage, including primary care, dental and mental health benefits, to workers who are not covered by the ACA or the proposed expansion of Medi-Cal.
