The extent of what is covered will be based on the type of plan, and what coverage the family has.

Medi-Cal is the state Medicaid program and is responsible for most of the health insurance coverage in the state. The insurance marketplace in the state also continues to grow, with numerous California residents enrolling in different insurance plans. However, most of the uninsured Californians lived in low-income households. For example, in 2016, around 2.8 million California residents lacked health insurance.
