Medi-Cal, California's Medicaid program, has added more than 2.7 million people to its rolls since the program was expanded under the Affordable Care Act. Medi-Cal now has 12 million beneficiaries. Twelve percent of the U.S. population resides in California, but the state accounts for 17% of the nation's Medicaid enrollment.
