Undocumented Californians lack access to affordable health care coverage
Undocumented Californians contribute billions of dollars to California’s economy, yet more than a million lack access to affordable health care coverage. Health care is a human right and providing health coverage to everyone – regardless of immigration status – is the right thing to do. This is why we fought for #Health4All - because a health care system that excludes anyone, hurts everyone.
It is estimated that there are 300,000 undocumented individuals living in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties.
What is currently happening?
Thanks to organizing and advocacy our state legislators are committing to expanding health care to more people. The Health4All campaign has worked for nearly a decade to remove barriers to health care for ALL Californians, regardless of immigration status. This year’s state budget includes the historic investment to ensure access to full-scope Medi-Cal to ALL income-eligible undocumented Californians, starting January 2024. California is the first state in the nation to take this action.
