Congressman Xavier Becerra (center) discussed health care reform during a March 15 visit to the Dean’s Community Leadership Council at the Keck School of Medicine of USC. In the two years since the Affordable Care Act was signed into law, he said, 105 million Americans have had a lifetime limit on their coverage eliminated. Up to 17 million children with pre-existing conditions can no longer be denied coverage by insurers, and 2.5 million additional young adults up to age 26 now have health insurance. Representing California’s 31st Congressional District, Becerra is also vice chair of the House Democratic Caucus. With Becerra above are Keck School Dean Carmen A. Puliafito (left) and USC Senior Vice President for University Relations Tom Sayles.
