Individual Health Insurance in California (CA)
There are 35.9 million people who call California home and this and more than half a million new babies add to that number each year. Of these, 6.7 million Californians are uninsured. With the large number of health insurance policies available including add-on policies to help those who have coverage just not quite enough, there's no reason that everyone in California can't enjoy his or her own health care policy.
California Health Facts
California's children are victim to the problem of health insurance starting from the moment of conception. More than 36,000 were born with a low birth weight–7 percent of all births–and 11 percent were born prematurely. Only 77 percent of California's children receive the immunizations they need in the first 35 months of life.
As they grow, the statistics are just as upsetting: 13 percent of children are overweight or obese and 47 percent didn't make it to both a dentist and a physician's office last year. With health insurance, children can get the checkups and treatment they need with minimal cost.
