About 3.4 million previously uninsured adults have obtained health insurance coverage in California in the past year, according to a new survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

It found that nearly 60 percent of residents who lacked coverage reported signing up for health insurance since last summer.

The figures are based on estimates of the state’s uninsured population last year and reflect the experiences of a randomly selected panel of residents without health insurance under the federal Affordable Care Act.
