Rate of uninsured falls in California
Orange County Register

California’s rate of uninsured residents fell to 8.1 percent last year, which is lower than the national average of 9.1 percent, according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

On Tuesday, Covered California, the state’s Obamacare exchange, said the decline demonstrates the success of the health care law, which took effect in 2014.

“California is succeeding in this new era of health care by using all the tools of the Affordable Care Act – expanding Medi-Cal and launching a state-based exchange that brings quality and value to our consumers,” Peter Lee, executive director, said in a statement.
