Uninsured Low-Income Children

Reports & Graphics

Definition

Percentage of children under 18 years of age at or below 200% of the federal poverty line without health insurance, 2011.

Description

States have expanded coverage for children through Medicaid and other programs since the inception of Children’s Health Insurance Programs (CHIP) and whereas low-income parents have high rates of being uninsured, their children actually have the lowest uninsured rates of any population. Many uninsured children actually qualify for public health insurance, and states could do more outreach and streamline enrollment to insure more eligible children.
