SB 480 Health Care Options Paper: Insuring California's Uninsured
Publication Date: March 2002
Publisher(s): Insure the Uninsured Project
This proposal addresses key weaknesses in California's system: lack of affordability of private coverage for low wage and flex workforces and the deterrence by complexity of public coverage.t does not change the basic structure of either public or private coverage; that is addressed in other options papers. It seeks to avoid shifts for individuals
with existing coverage and suggests a starting point for state health reform efforts to cover the uninsured.
