Click Here to Support SB 4 the Health4All Act!

We believe that healthcare is a human right and denying people access to affordable health care based on their immigration status is wrong. Out-of-pocket healthcare costs represent the single greatest driver of poverty in the United States, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, if we continue to deny people who are already struggling to get by access to affordable healthcare we are denying them a chance to prosper.

The Health for All Act, Senate Bill 1005 (Lara,) will  will create a public health exchange like Covered California that will offer the same premium subsidies and cost-sharing reductions that someone would receive if they weren’t excluded because of their immigration status. The Health for All Act will also ensure that people who are eligible in every way except for their immigration status will receive Medi-Cal, the no-cost health care program for very low-income people in California.

The Health for All Act is supported by the following organizations: Latino Coalition for a Healthy California, Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA), California Immigrant Policy Center, Western Center on Law and Poverty, Health Access California, California Pan-Ethnic health Network (CPEHN), Community Clinic Association of Los Angeles County, SEIU California, California Primary Care Association Clinica Monseñor Oscar A. Romero, California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance, California Partnership, Young Invincibles, and many more
