Thousands of people who bought health insurance through California’s individual marketplace are accessing healthcare services at hospitals in the state, according to a report released this week.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi touted the report during a visit Tuesday to the University of California at San Francisco.

The report includes a detailed breakdown of the services Covered California patients have received between Jan. 1, 2014, when coverage began, and June 30, 2015. It included data from 111 acute-care hospitals, which represented about 40% of the inpatient care delivered in the state in 2014.
