Health plans provide access to the benefits, provider networks, and services that individuals and families need to manage their health and wellness for today and tomorrow. Home to world-renowned doctors, hospitals, and health care systems, California’s health plans are able to guide members to leading providers, innovative treatments, and services. Whether it’s finding a specialist, managing a chronic condition, or following up after a hospitalization, health plans are dedicated to helping our members successfully navigate their care among doctors and other providers.
With about 93 percent of all Californians covered by health insurance through their employers, Medicare, Medi-Cal, or through the individual market, health plans are continuing to help the remaining 6.8% receive coverage. This includes supporting expanding coverage to undocumented adults, which will help us close in on universal coverage and ultimately foster affordability by reducing costly uncompensated visits to the emergency room and by promoting healthier communities with preventive care.
