Impact on Small Businesses:
The Unwinding of Medi-Cal Continuous Coverage
Tens of thousands of California small businesses have at least some employees enrolled in Medi-Cal. The unwinding of Medi-Cal continuous coverage is not only affecting the disenrolled members. It is also impacting the small businesses that employ many of them. These businesses rely on a healthy and productive workforce to thrive and, in the face of this disruption, they are looking to experts like you for guidance and support.
The Impact on California Businesses by The Numbers:
- An estimated 2-3 million Californians stand to lose Medi-Cal coverage within the next year.
- Over 40% aged 19-64 are employed.
- Almost 90% of those are employed full-time.
For these employees, enrolling in their company's health plan may be the best, or indeed the only, affordable option for health coverage following their loss of Medi-Cal benefits.
