The number of Americans living without health insurance took a big dip last year according to figures released this morning. Nearly 9 million people have gained coverage since 2013. 

Southern California Public Radio's Rebecca Plevin joins the show every week to talk about the latest in consumer health. This week, along with the new facts about Americans living without health insurance, she's got an update on Assembly Bill 533, which was designed to protect Californians from huge and unexpected medical bills. It didn't pass, but it's not completely dead yet.
