SB-562 The Healthy California Act

 

When enacted, the Healthy California Act will guarantee that every resident of California will receive comprehensive healthcare services. It’s like Medicare for All. Individuals will have free choice of licensed health professionals and services. Covered benefits will include services to keep people healthy- mentally and physically- as well as services that diagnose and treat diseases. In addition to emergency services, surgeries and hospital stays, services such as home healthcare, day care and hospice are covered. Vision and dental care are also included. The Healthy California Act has been crafted to provide a single high standard of safe, therapeutic care for all California residents in a manner that is financially sustainable. The advances from the Affordable Care Act will be folded into the new system and it will lower prescription drug costs. There will be huge cost-savings from reduced bureaucracy. No more insurance company runaround. No more bill collectors.

The Healthy California Act will create a system that will serve all Californians equitably, efficiently, and affordably. Now, more than ever, with affordable access to healthcare under attack, do we need to band together to make sure that healthcare is a right that is afforded to all regardless of their personal, social, and economic circumstance.
