Sacramento Business Journal

The percentage of working age adults in California without health insurance was cut in half since September, a new survey shows. The uninsured rate dropped to 11 percent for the quarter that ended in June, down from 22 percent from the quarter that ended in September 2013, according to a survey by the Commonwealth Fund. Nationwide, the rate dropped to 15 percent from 20 percent over the same period, meaning there are now an estimated 9.5 million fewer adults in the U.S. without insurance, thanks to the Affordable Care Act. The figures reflect the population ages 19 to 64.
