The Affordable Care Act recently upheld by the Supreme Court would allow 80 percent of Los Angeles County’s 2.2 million uninsured residents access to affordable insurance coverage, according to a report released this week. Dr. Mitchell Katz, director of the county Department of Health Services, added about half of those residents would be eligible to receive coverage through Medi-Cal if California opts to participate in the Medicaid expansion beginning in 2014.
