SB 10

(Lara) Floor: 55-20-5


co-authors: Bonta, Chiu, Gonzalez, Roger Hernández, Santiago, Thurmond, Wood


As of 2014, about 2.4 million people living in California were undocumented immigrants. However, under the Affordable Care Act, these immigrants were not able to purchase their own health insurance, leaving millions to suffer without proper, timely treatment due to excessive health care costs. SB10 increases health insurance options for all by allowing undocumented immigrants to be insured through Covered California, and expands Medi-Cal to low-income undocumented adults.
