​Using data from the 2012-2013 California Health Interview Survey, researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, compared differences in access to care for Medi-Cal enrollees to those with employer-sponsored insurance (ESI).

This publication has a companion report by the Urban Institute, Medi-Cal Versus Medicaid in Other States: Comparing Access to Care.   ​NOTE: As of July 10, 2015, pages 3, 4, 5, 34, and 35 of the report comparing Medi-Cal to employer-based coverage have been corrected.
