Healthcare in California

Healthcare in California is provided through a variety of means, including private insurance, Medi-Cal (California's Medicaid program), and Medicare. California has a number of laws and programs in place to ensure access to quality healthcare for its residents, including the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which expands Medicaid coverage and provides subsidies for private insurance.

California has a large and diverse population, and healthcare services are available through a variety of providers, including hospitals, clinics, and private medical practices. The state has a number of major medical centers, including the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center and the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

There are also many community health clinics and centers throughout the state that provide affordable healthcare services to underserved populations. These include federally qualified health centers, which provide comprehensive primary care services on a sliding fee scale based on income, and county health clinics, which are operated by local governments.

In addition to these traditional healthcare providers, California has a number of alternative and complementary medicine practitioners, including chiropractors, acupuncturists, and naturopathic doctors.
