CHCF Updates California Almanac on the Uninsured

The California HealthCare Foundation has updated its annual publication that offers a picture of those who lack health insurance coverage, providing data on their income, age, ethnicity, eligibility for public insurance and work status. The California Health Care Almanac, attached, asserts that while the ranks of the uninsured may grow in the short term if more individuals lose their employer-based coverage, changes under the Affordable Care Act scheduled to take effect in 2014 would allow more Californians to gain coverage. Additional information, including a Quick Reference Guide and Current Population Survey data, is available at www.chcf.org/publications/2011/12/californias-uninsured.
