Medi-Cal to cover nearly one-third of Californians
California Health Report

California now expects enrollment in the Medi-Cal program to grow by 46 percent by the end of the 2014-15 budget year, with 800,000 of those new enrollees not part of the Affordable Care Act.

The ACA provided nearly full federal funding — starting at 100 percent and then phasing down to 90 percent — for those low-income people who were given coverage for the first time under the rules included in the health reform law.
