Sacramento Business Journal

State officials say 3.3 million more Californians have insurance today thanks to the Affordable Care Act. But another 3 to 4 million still lack coverage. “The numbers are changing all the time, but that’s still a heck of a lot of people,” Richard Figueroa, program manager for health reform at The California Endowment, said during a panel discussion in Sacramento on California’s remaining uninsured. The Wednesday event was sponsored by the California Primary Care Association, whose members serve as the safety net for the poor and indigent.
