On Monday, the California State Assembly will be voting on Assembly Bill (AB) 1400, also known as the California Guaranteed Healthcare For All Act, or simply CalCare, on Monday, January 31, 2022.
Per the text of AB 1400, the bill in part would “create the California Guaranteed Health Care for All program, or CalCare, to provide comprehensive universal single-payer health care coverage and a health care cost control system for the benefit of all residents of the state and “would provide that CalCare cover a wide range of medical benefits and other services and would incorporate the health care benefits and standards of other existing federal and state provisions, including
- the federal Children’s Health Insurance Program
- ancillary health care or social services covered by regional centers for persons with developmental disabilities
- Knox-Keene, and
- the federal Medicare program.”
