Health Access says millions of Californians will stay uninsured next year. They include undocumented immigrants, people who have missed enrollment deadlines, or others who are excluded from the mandate to buy insurance.

“A family with the same circumstances in different counties will have potentially different access to care and to coverage as a result of their income or immigration status,” said Wright.
