Congresswoman Sanchez strongly believes that every American, and particularly every child, should have access to quality medical care.
Rep. Sanchez has taken an active role in helping children gain access to health services through School-Based Health Centers and supporting the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) Reauthorization bill.
Congresswoman Sanchez is a strong supporter of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), signed into law by President Obama in 2010. After learning that Santa Ana ranked as one of the most poorly insured cities in the United States, Congresswoman Sanchez launched Enroll OC, connecting Orange County residents with certified, in-person bilingual health insurance enrollment services. During the first Covered California enrollment period, Enroll OC helped more than 2,000 people enroll in health insurance. Hundreds of residents have also benefited from Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez’s bilingual workshops: Know Your Benefits/Conoce tus beneficios, which offer individualized help toward understanding healthcare benefits.
Congresswoman Sanchez is committed to preserving health care reform and promoting policies that deliver affordable and quality care to every American.
