Who are California’s uninsured?

Nearly one-fourth lack health insurance

California is the nation’s largest state, so it’s no surprise that it also has the largest number of people under 65 without health insurance. It also has the seventh-largest percentage of residents without coverage. The percentage of Californians who have employer-based coverage has continued to fall, from 65 percent in 1987 to 52 percent in 2011. While Medi-Cal has partially filled this gap, almost 22 percent of Californians remain uninsured.
