The Policy Café breakfast series brings together clinics, policymakers, community leaders, researchers and other stakeholders for quarterly discussions on the issues impacting Los Angeles County’s health care landscape. From sessions on state issues to debates at the federal level, and discussions on life after health care reform, the series drives dialogue on today’s hot topics. No podium. No PowerPoint. Just frank conversation.
The Way Forward: Building on the ACA in California
Anthony E. Wright
Executive Director, Health Access
Ten years after the historic passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), California is exploring bold strategies to build on the gains of the ACA and advance the vision of health care for all.
California had a landmark 2019 in health reform, expanding access and coverage, and taking proactive steps to improve affordability, quality and equity. Covered California recently released new enrollment numbers for 2020 showing overall enrollment of more than 1.5 million, including over 400,000 new enrollees – a 41 percent increase over 2019. California continues to rebut federal attempts to weaken and dismantle the Affordable Care Act and lead the nation – demonstrating that where there is a will, there is a way.
Join us for a dialogue with Anthony E. Wright, the Executive Director of Health Access, and a member of Governor Newsom’s Healthy California for All Commission, as he provides his take on health care reform in California and where we go from here. How can stakeholders and elected officials work together to preserve gains achieved by the ACA, while advancing the vision of universal coverage and access? How do we ensure that clinics—critical providers in California’s underserved and low-income communities—are seamlessly incorporated into a future delivery system?
This café will take place on Friday, March 20, 2020, from 8:30-10:30am at the Huffington Center at Saint Sophia Cathedral (1324 Normandie Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90006).
