California Healthline

California has the largest number of residents without health insurance in the U.S. and the 10th highest rate of uninsured individuals, according to a U.S. Census Bureau report, the Sacramento Bee’s “Capitol Alert” reports.

However, officials expect the population of uninsured residents to shrink by at least 50% when the state health insurance exchange and Medi-Cal expansion are implemented under the Affordable Care Act.
