The Affordable Care Act (ACA)


ACA took full effect on January 1, 2014. California has led the way in implementing the new law by expanding health care access through two no or low-cost health coverage programs, Covered California and Medi-Cal.  ACA shifts the health care system towards affordable prevention to help people stay healthy!
