​This fact sheet examines health insurance trends using 2015 data from the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS).  The authors find that nearly one-third of all nonelderly adults and children (32.2 percent) were enrolled in Medi-Cal in 2015, an increase of 11 percentage points from 2013. The study also finds significant increases in enrollment and greater affordablility for traditionally disadvantaged groups: the low-income and communities of color.

This fact sheet was developed with funding from The California Wellness Foundation.
