This presentation will provide information on California's population likely to be eligible for coverage expansions under the ACA, in addition to providing detail on those likely to take-up coverage in two different scenarios. Special attention will be paid to the limited English proficient, racial/ethnic minorities, immigrant groups, and young adults. After discussing the potentially hard-to-reach populations in the state, we will discuss grants and marketing attempts by the Exchange and other entities in California to find and enroll those groups.
