Description

The structure of the regional economy leads to high rates of uninsurance in San Diego County. San Diego County spends relatively little on the uninsured, compared to other major California counties, and that amount has been diminishing as state funding has decreased. Community clinics and private hospitals are at financial risk as operating funds are disappearing and uninsured rates are rising. The Affordable Care Act provides an opportunity to provide healthcare for many more San Diego County residents – including more than 200,000 newly eligible for Medi-Cal – and to bring badly needed federal funding to the region.
