On the next Your Call, we're continuing our conversation about the rollout of the Affordable Care Act and what it means for you. This time we’re focusing on Medical. As California’s program prepares for a major expansion, doctors say they can’t accept new patients because it doesn’t pay enough. So how will state serve the additional two million people expected to join the program? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Millions of Americans have received letters from insurance companies in the last few months, cancelling their health plans. It’s part of the transition to the Affordable Care Act, and it’s sparked anger and confusion. President Obama has been trying to address the concerns. Last month, he said this:

“…virtually every insurer is offering new, better plans and competing for these folks’ business. I realize that can be scary for people if they just get some notice like that.  So we've got to make sure that we're getting them the right information.”
