The number of Californians buying individual health insurance soared 64% to nearly 2.2 million as Obamacare took full effect last year, a new report shows. In California, 843,607 people joined the individual market both inside and outside the Covered California insurance exchange, as of Dec. 31, 2014.

California and three other states — Florida, Texas and Georgia — accounted for about half of the enrollment growth nationwide for individual policies, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation report released Wednesday.
