In 2013, 6.6 million Californians lacked health insurance.
Then came the rollout of the Affordable Care Act. By April of this year, Covered California, the
state’s health insurance marketplace, had enrolled 1.4 million people, although not all of them were previously uninsured. Today 1.12 million remain enrolled. An additional 2.5 million people enrolled through July in Medi-Cal, the state’s health plan for the poor.
In the map, click on a county to see the pre-ACA uninsured rate -- and the number of people who signed up for Covered California or Medi-Cal. The Census Bureau will have data on 2014 total insurance coverage in September 2015.
