California Has Seen a 34% Increase in Medi-Cal Enrollment Since ACA

California leads the nation in enrollment in Medicaid, the national health program for low-income people, and has seen a 34 percent increase in enrollment since the Affordable Care Act took effect, according to a new report.

As the most populous state, it’s no surprise that California has the largest number of Medicaid enrollees — it did before the federal health law was enacted too.
