Cumulatively, 4,393 individuals in the Northern California counties of Butte, Colusa, Del Norte, Glenn, Humboldt, Lake, Lassen, Mendocino, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity and Yuba have enrolled in subsidized or nonsubsidized Covered California health insurance plans, which reflects about 4 percent of the statewide enrollment (the counties make up 4 percent of those eligible for subsidies statewide).
