The California Health Care Foundation is dedicated to advancing meaningful, measurable improvements in the way the health care delivery system provides care to the people of California, particularly those with low incomes and those whose needs are not well served by the status quo. We work to ensure that people have access to the care they need, when they need it, at a price they can afford.
At the California Health Care Foundation, we know that health care is a basic necessity. We work hard to improve California’s health care system, so it works for all Californians.
Because low-income Californians experience the biggest health burden and face the greatest barriers to care, our priority is to make sure they can get the care they need.
We are especially focused on strengthening Medi-Cal — the cornerstone of California’s safety net. We are also committed to finding better ways to meet the health care needs of the millions of people who remain uninsured in our state.
