Senate Bill 4 - Right fix for our community
After the Affordable Care Act failed to ensure all residents of California have access to healthcare, State Sen. Ricardo Lara introduced and passed a bill in the California State Senate which will further expand access to healthcare to 100% of California’s children (SB4). As a community who serves primary care patients in East Los Angeles and Orange County, this legislation is just the type of measure that AltaMed and its supporters should be backing. This bill, which is the right thing to do, also means that there will be more people in our clinics, more prescriptions to fill, and more dental and vision exams to perform. When there are more patients in our clinics, we require more of your services. This is a bill that we should all be fighting for.
