California’s Uninsured Rate Falls To New Low

Obamacare has made a big difference in California. A new fact sheet from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research shows 13.6 percent of Californians were uninsured in 2014.

That’s a new low. The report shows over the last two years, an increasing number of Californians have bought a policy on their own or enrolled in Medi-Cal. One in four Californians now have Medi-Cal coverage. Shana Alex Charles, the center’s director of health insurance studies, said Obamacare has been a smash hit.
