California’s Remaining Uninsured

By 2019, the ACA will reduce the number of uninsured by between 1.8 and 2.7 million people. Despite the significant reduction, between 3.1 and 4 millions of Californians may still lack insurance. There are numerous explanations for why California will have a significant population that will remain uninsured, but this group can be segmented into three categories: 1) undocumented immigrants; 2) individuals who are Medi-Cal eligible but not enrolled, and; 3) individuals eligible for Covered California but not enrolled.

In this series of reports, ITUP identifies who will remain uninsured, what resources are available to them, and how care to the uninsured is financed. The culmination is a set of policy options and recommendations for California to improve and expand access and coverage.
