Current through the 2021 Legislative Session
The Legislature finds and declares all of the following: (a) Pursuant to Section 14180, the Legislature directed the department to apply for a successor federal waiver or demonstration project, in part, to coincide with the end of the waiver described in relevant part in subdivision (b) of Section 15900 to, among other requirements, optimize opportunities to increase federal financial participation and maximize financial resources to address uncompensated care. (b) Passage of federal health care reform, pursuant to the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ( Public Law 111-148 ), as amended by the federal Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 ( Public Law 111-152 ), presents new options of federal support for coverage of low-income individuals and significant expansion of state coverage programs in 2014. Through the success of the Health Care Coverage Initiatives established pursuant to Part 3.5 (commencing with Section 15900), and with implementation of a successor federal Medicaid waiver or demonstration project, California is well positioned to develop enrollment and coverage expansion models that will lead the way to full implementation of comprehensive health care reforms in 2014.
