Protect Health Care Letter & Support

Members of California’s Congressional delegation

RE: Protect health care for California’s children and families

Dear Majority Leader McCarthy, Minority Leader Pelosi, Senator Feinstein, Senator-Elect Harris, and all members of California’s Congressional delegation;

As our elected representatives in Washington DC, we urge you to protect health care for California’s children. Nearly 60 percent of California’s children rely on Medi-Cal and networks of private health providers for their health care. Cuts to the Medicaid system would immediately and directly decimate health coverage and access to care for children in California. In addition, a repeal of the Affordable Care Act would result in an estimated 5 million Californians losing coverage (including half a million kids) and a devastating loss of $20 billion in federal funding for California in one year alone.

Californians have worked tirelessly to extend health care to more children in our state, and we have done so while shoring up the state’s fiscal health. While these achievements were not without their own difficulties and challenges, the result is a stronger health care economy that is more efficient, equitable, and accessible. In the past two decades, we have transformed California from a state with nearly 2 million uninsured kids to one in which all children have access to affordable health coverage, and all but approximately 100,000 are enrolled.

Health coverage is critical for children. Children with health coverage do better in school and miss fewer school days; are more likely to graduate from high school and go to college; have fewer emergency visits and hospitalizations as children and as adults; and earn more money as adults. In short, health coverage helps children thrive and live out their dreams.

We urge you to carefully consider your role in protecting health care for kids in the coming weeks and months. The wrong proposals, actions/inactions, or rhetoric can promote anxiety and confusion for families; disrupt and destabilize health care markets; cause chaos for those crafting the state budget; undo administrative efficiencies that promote health care services over paperwork burdens; and/or derail initiatives to ensure value, quality, and accountability for federal health care dollars.

It is your responsibility to protect the health of California kids. Half a million children would lose their health coverage under the proposed changes to the Affordable Care Act, and that is unacceptable. Children, families, seniors, and single adults are all counting on you to protect their access to care. As Californians, we stand together and will do all we can to help you make informed and responsible choices in support of the health of California’s kids and that of children across the country.
