Opinion: Funding, Planning Issues Threaten ACA Progress
In a Sacramento Bee opinion piece, HealthyCal editor Daniel Weintraub warns that "tensions between the administration of Gov. Jerry Brown and Democrats in the Legislature could scuttle" progress the state has made in expanding Medi-Cal, California's Medicaid program,Â and establishing a health insurance exchange under the Affordable Care Act. However, he concludes that California "still seems poised to lead the nation with the state's embrace, and implementation, of the new federal law."
