Two-thirds of uninsured Californians gain coverage after Obamacare rollout
Los Angeles Times

More than two-thirds of Californians uninsured before the Affordable Care Act now have coverage, a new report finds.

“For people that didn’t have health insurance, California has been very successful in enrolling two-thirds of that group,” said Mollyann Brodie, a senior vice president at the Kaiser Family Foundation, which released the survey’s findings Thursday. “But the group that is left is a harder-to-reach group.”

She said the survey results indicate that, for the most part, people who have obtained coverage are seeing the benefits of health insurance and having their medical needs met.
