CalCare: California Guaranteed Health Care for All

The California Nurses Association is proud to sponsor Assembly Bill 1400, the California Guaranteed Health Care for All Act (CalCare), which would guarantee comprehensive, high-quality health care to all California residents as a human right.

AB 1400 sets in motion a single-payer health care coverage system in California for all residents, regardless of citizenship status. By streamlining payments and lowering per-capita health care spending, CalCare guarantees quality health care and long-term care without creating barriers to care or out-of-pocket costs.

Take Action to Pass CalCare!

Thanks to the statewide movement we have built together, AB 1400 has recently passed the Assembly Health and Appropriations Committees. The bill now moves to the Assembly floor for a full vote on or before Monday, Jan. 31st. It won’t be easy, but together we can win. Check our toolkit for a list of actions you can take now ahead of the floor vote.
