This bill would enact a new tax on managed care organizations (MCOs) in order to fund the Medi-Cal program. Nearly 50% of California children are now enrolled in Medi-Cal, with close to a million children and youth (to age 20) added to the program recently, since California terminated Healthy Families, the state’s Children’s Health Insurance Program, and with the Affordable Care Act’s expansion of Medicaid.
