New Report Looks at Health Care Trends in California Compared to Rest of Nation

A new chartbook by the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that on most, though not all indicators, California’s health care system fares poorly when compared to the U.S. as a whole. The report, Health Care Trends and Indicators in California and the United States, shows that many more Californians have no health insurance than in the rest of the U.S., but when they do have insurance it tends to be more comprehensive and cost less than elsewhere.

The report, which compares key trends and indicators in California’s health care system with those in the rest of the country, is authored by researchers at the Foundation and the Center for Health and Public Policy Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.
