Up to 3.7 million insured in California’s Medicaid expansion and a further 1.2 million Californians receiving subsidies to buy affordable health insurance in Covered California are at risk if current Republican plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act are enacted, according to a set of new studies and county fact sheets from the UC Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education and the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research.
Millions of Californians stand to lose from ACA repeal in some way — either through lost access to affordable coverage or to jobs created by health insurance expansion.
“Fallout from Republican changes to the health care system could be even more harmful if the administration changes the way Medi-Cal benefits are calculated or if coverage features are reduced,” said Miranda Dietz, researcher at the UC Berkeley Labor Center and lead author of one study.
