Encouraging Enrollment Through the Affordable Care Act (ACA)


A recent UCLA study showed that nearly 5 million uninsured Californians can gain access to prevention-based coverage in 2014 through federal health reform, but many people eligible for Medi-Cal, the state’s public insurance program, haven’t enrolled. We aim to educate key communities about the benefits of the ACA and, by doing so, increase the number of children and adults enrolled in affordable health coverage. We’re focusing on Latinos and lower income Californians, who represent approximately 92% of the state’s total eligible but uninsured population.

What We’re Doing

  • Reaching out to lower-income and Latino families to make them aware of the benefits of the ACA and connect them with enrollment information and assistance.
  • Educating young Californians aged 18-26 about new provisions under the ACA.
