A Message from Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan:

Today, because of The Affordable Care Act (ACA), 105,917 Alameda County residents are enrolled as Medicaid Coverage Expansion (MCE) members in Alameda County’s Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans, and 64,110 Alameda County residents are enrolled in health insurance plans through the Covered California exchange. In total, over 170,000 Alameda County residents—or 10.4% of the population—are at immediate risk of losing their health insurance coverage, if Congress repeals the ACA without a replacement plan.

On December 6th, the Alameda County Board of Supervisor adopted Resolution Number 2016-370 opposing the repeal of The Affordable Care Act (ACA)—commonly called Obamacare. We are launching a Fight for Medi-Cal Campaign to protect our residents from the devastating impact a repeal of the ACA would have on our communities, our health care workers, and on the County’s ability to fund and provide vital programs and services.

#Fight4OurHealth. Please take a moment out of your day to help us get our message to Congress by taking action!

TAKE ACTION: CALL 866-426-2631 TODAY- 

Enter your zip code and Tell Congress: I oppose cuts or caps to Medi-Cal. Show us your plan to lower healthcare costs and make improvements before taking healthcare and Medi-Cal away from millions of Californians, our children, and our aging parents.

Make sure you share why quality, affordable healthcare is important to you, your family, and your work!
