Profiling California’s Health Plan Enrollees: Findings from the 2007 California Health Interview Survey

October 1, 2010

Policy Research Report

Authors: Dylan H. Roby, PhD, Gina Nicholson, Gerald F. Kominski, PhD

This report provides a pre-reform snapshot of health status and utilization characteristics of Californians who were either enrolled in commercial or public managed care plans or who were uninsured in 2007. Using the most recently available data from the 2007 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS), this report provides a detailed profile of demographic characteristics, disease conditions, health status, health care use, and barriers to care among California residents. Among the findings are a high need for certain types of health care, such as mental health services, as well as a growing reliance on high-deductible health plans, especially among the low-income and self-employed.

The report was funded by the California Office of the Patient Advocate.
