Seventy-two percent of California’s previously uninsured gained coverage since the Affordable Care Act went into effect.
The majority of the recently insured say their experience with their current Covered California plan has been positive.
Nearly half of the remaining uninsured are unaware of the financial help available only through Covered California.
The survey found that recently insured consumers are getting access to quality care:
- Seventy-seven percent say their health needs are being met, which is up from 49 percent in the first survey conducted before the launch of the Affordable Care Act and Covered California’s first open-enrollment period.
- Seventy-six percent are satisfied with their choice of primary care doctors.
- Seventy percent say their experience with their current Covered California health care plan has been positive.
