CA makes significant progress in enrolling previously uninsured, survey finds

Kaiser Health News / San Jose Mercury News, July 31, 2014

A significant portion of previously uninsured Californians gained medical coverage through the nation's health care law – about six in 10 during the state's first open enrollment, according to a survey released Wednesday. All told, about 3.4 million people who didn't have health insurance before sign-ups began last fall are now covered, according to the survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation. (Kaiser Health News is an editorially independent program of the foundation.) The largest share of the previously uninsured -- 25 percent -- enrolled through the state's Medi-Cal program, which has long covered poor families but was expanded this year to include adults without children.
