As California’s system of job-based health insurance continues to erode, low- and moderate-income workers are increasingly being left out, according to this policy brief from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. While a majority of Californians continue to get health insurance through their employer or that of a family member, researchers noted that job-based insurance is particularly declining among those living at or below the poverty level. This policy brief examines changes in employment-based insurance of working Californians, ages 19-64.
