California Health and Human Services Agency

The California Health and Human Services Agency oversees departments, boards, and offices that provide a wide range of health care services, social services, mental health services, alcohol and drug treatment services, public health services, income assistance, and services to people with disabilities.

Affordable Health Care Coverage

We are committed to making health care affordable and accessible for Californians. The Affordable Care Act is an excellent opportunity to improve access to and contain the costs of health care. Covered California, California’s Health Benefit Exchange, is a new marketplace in which people will be able to purchase comprehensive and affordable health care coverage for themselves, their families, and their small businesses.

Our Vision

All Californians, especially those most at risk or in need, have the opportunity to enjoy a high quality of life as measured by the sound physical, mental and financial health of children, adolescents and adults; strong and well-functioning families; safe and sustainable communities; and dignity for all.
