​More than two million undocumented immigrants live in California. They make significant contributions to our state, comprising nearly one-tenth of the workforce and paying about $3 billion in state and local taxes each year. Yet even though undocumented Californians work and pay taxes, the vast majority face significant challenges when it comes to accessing health care.

The report shows that nearly 90 percent of undocumented adults with low incomes lack health care coverage. This is largely due to the fact that undocumented adults remain ineligible for Medi-Cal, California’s Medicaid program that provides health care services to low-income Californians.
