U.S. reaches historical milestone in number of uninsured children

The nation saw the sharpest two-year decline in the uninsured rate for children's health care between 2013 and 2015 – with 95 percent of children having health coverage in 2015, according to a just-released study.

The Georgetown University Center for Children and Families 50 state report found that 41 states reduced their child uninsured rates between 2013 and 2015 after Affordable Care Act provisions took effect.

“This is a testament to what can be achieved when national and state leaders work together to confront intolerable problems such as children going without health coverage in our country,” said Georgetown University CCF Executive Director Joan Alker.
