One in Three Californians Now Covered by Medi-Cal
One-third of Californians now have health coverage through Medi-Cal, the state's Medicaid program. Total enrollment in Medi-Cal has reached 12.7 million residents. State Sen. Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina), chair of the state Senate Health Committee, said, "When the final numbers started coming out, where a third of the population was on Medi-Cal, it went way past anyone's expectations."
