Healthy California for All Commission
“As our march toward universal coverage continues I am calling on the brightest minds– from public and private sectors– to serve in the Healthy California for All Commission to improve the health of our state." -Governor Gavin Newsom

The Healthy California for All Commission will work to develop a plan for advancing progress toward achieving a health care delivery system for California that provides coverage and access through a unified financing system, including, but not limited to a single payer financing system. The Commission will prepare an initial report to the Governor and Legislature by July 2020 with a final report in February 2021.
