Sacramento Bee

In 2013, 6.6 million Californians lacked health insurance. Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange, enrolled 1.4 million people through April, some of whom were previously covered through private insurance. California leads the nation in embracing the 2010 Affordable Care Act. It enrolled more people than any other state this year, approximately 3.6 million, driving down the state’s uninsured rate from 17 percent to 11 percent.
