Why are more Black, Latino children uninsured?

A recent study in Texas that has broader implications about health care for children in low-income families shows that parents of more than half of the state's uninsured Latino and Black children don't realize their kids could be eligible for Medicaid or state health coverage.

With so many parents out of the loop, many are facing an undue financial burden to pay for health care, a Washington Post article about the study suggests.

"The catch," the Post writes, is that, in most cases, parents have to sign their children up, and they can't do that if they don't know they're eligible.
