In 2008, the idea was included in a large health reform proposal under Gov.Arnold Schwarzenegger — modeled after Massachusetts’ plan, with government subsidies and a prohibition on denying coverage for people with preexisting conditions — that cleared the Assembly but died in the Senate Health Committee.Under the Affordable Care Act, California has lowered its uninsured rate to a record 7 percent.

According to the committee’s bill, if residents failed to have coverage, they would face a penalty of 9.66 percent of their income each year, capped at $10,000.

But the bill would provide a choice — pay the penalty or put 9.66 percent of income each month into a health savings account managed by the state.

The elimination of the individual mandate, which requires people to buy insurance or pay a tax penalty, is included in the GOP tax bill that is expected to reach President Trump’s desk by Christmas.

Repealing the mandate is projected to lead to 1.7 million fewer Californians with health insurance over the next decade, with experts predicting that some young, healthy people may choose to drop coverage if it is not required.

But some actions would be costly and require a difficult-to-muster two-thirds majority in the Legislature.

Ed Hernandez, D-West Covina (Los Angeles County), chair of the Senate Health Committee.

“All options are on the table if federal enforcement of the individual mandate ends.” California, which moved more quickly and aggressively than most states in implementing the health care act, could take a number of steps to mitigate the impacts of federal repeal.

Larry Perosino, spokesman for House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz, D-Berlin, said the speaker “is always supportive of finding ways to improve access to quality affordable healthcare.” But, he said, Aresimowicz is not planning to propose an amendment.
