Policymakers argue that long waits will result in delays in diagnosis and treatment, and these delays negatively affect individual health.

Apart from this, California has a wide range of people, which varies in socioeconomic status and there is a large segment which delays health care due to lack of health insurance. This study focuses on analyzing the reasons behind the delay in health care among California residents and proposes remedies which can help mitigate the problem.
