About Health Care Reform in California

In response to rising health care costs, opportunities for improving health care quality, and the increasing number of uninsured individuals, a number of health care reform strategies have been proposed in California and across the nation.

These reform proposals focus on complex health care issues, including:

  • increasing eligibility for the uninsured to obtain health insurance coverage,
  • what health care services should be covered,
  • who is responsible to obtain, pay for and keep health care coverage,
  • what responsibility individuals have for their health and health care,
  • what responsibility employers have for the health care of their employees,
  • how to finance health care,
  • and whether health insurance companies (private industry) or the government should administer health care services.
