While many uninsured individuals are low-income residents, upper-middle-income Californians also struggle to afford high-priced private health care coverage.

Some local entrepreneurs have been stunned because they failed to meet all the rules for the small-business tax credits in last year's highly vaunted federal health care law to help cover their health care costs.
