Los Angeles Times

Nearly 5 million uninsured Californians could gain access to health coverage in 2014 when the nation’s healthcare law expands eligibility for subsidized insurance programs for the poor, according to a new report.

At that time, more than two-thirds of the state’s 7 million uninsured residents will be eligible for California’s Medi-Cal insurance program, which serves the state’s poorest people, or for federal subsidies aimed at those who earn more but have no coverage through their jobs.
