Minnesota Research Finds More Kids in U.S. Have Health Insurance

A new report compiled by the University of Minnesota School of Public Health's State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC) shows the percentage of U.S. children who lack health insurance fell to 7.5 percent in 2012, the most recent year of data available. The percentage of uninsured children nationwide dropped from 9.7 percent in 2008. The report also shows significant gains in coverage among children who historically have been most likely to be uninsured – including non-White and Hispanic children and kids in low-income families.
