In a California Healthline Special Report by Rachel Dornhelm, experts discussed how the re-election of President Obama and the passage of California’s Proposition 30 will affect the state’s health care system.

Many officials and advocates said that 2013 will be a crucial year for health care policy as the nation moves toward full implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

The Special Report includes comments from:

  • Alex Briscoe, director of the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency;
  • Vanessa Cajina, a legislative advocate at the Western Center on Law and Poverty;
  • State Controller John Chiang (D);
  • Joe Lee, Community HealthCorps program coordinator at LifeLong Medical Care; and
  • William Walker, director and health officer for Contra Costa Health Services (Dornhelm, California Healthline, 10/10).
