Survey: Remaining uninsured harder to reach
Sacramento Bee

About 2.5 million California adults remain uninsured after the first open enrollment period for the new federal health law, and the state will face even bigger challenges in reaching those people, particularly Latinos, according to a survey released Tuesday by a national health policy nonprofit.

In a follow-up to its long-term study of California’s uninsured, the Kaiser Family Foundation found that 3.4 million previously uninsured adults now have health coverage after the first open enrollment season under President Barack Obama’s health overhaul.
