Small Business Majority supports California Assembly Bill 4

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Small Business Majority writes in support of AB 4, which would extend MediCal, which provides healthcare to qualified low-income individuals, to all individuals who would be otherwise eligible if not for their immigration status. Extending this coverage would drastically decrease the number of remaining uninsured in the state, as roughly 1.4 million undocumented Californians are without healthcare coverage (half of the total uninsured). Measures such as these are key to increasing healthcare access and strengthening the healthcare system overall, which is vitally important to California small businesses.
