This case study focuses specifically on Los Angeles County's two-plan model and Orange County's COHS model. It is one of a series of reports from the Kaiser/Commonwealth Low-Income Coverage and Access Project. This project examines how changes in the Medicaid program have affected health insurance health insurance coverage and access to care for the low-income population in eight states: California, Florida, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Tennessee, and Texas.
