From the summary:
This report, jointly authored by the California Budget Project and the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, finds that many California families spend a substantial amount on health care premiums and out-of-pockets costs, and could face financially devastating medical expenses if they are not adequately protected. The report recommends that health care reform proposals ensure that families can realistically afford premiums and out-of-pocket costs, such as copayments and deductibles.
