Sacramento Bee

As recession continues to grip the state, the number of Californians without health insurance, especially coverage provided by employers, has continued to climb, according to a new study by the California Healthcare Foundation. Over the last two decades, the foundation says, Californians under 65 with employer-provided health insurance have dropped from 65 percent to 52 percent and “while increases in Medicaid (Medi-Cal) coverage partially offset this decline, more than 20 percent of Californians remained uninsured.”
