Children’s Health Coverage Rate at Record 95%

Recently released data from the U.S. Census Bureau examining health insurance coverage rates in 2015 find that, for the period 2013-2015, children’s uninsured levels experienced the largest two year decline on record; this decline coincided with the implementation of most of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act. The U.S. saw the rate of uninsured children decline from 7.1 percent to 4.8 percent during this time period.

Many studies have concluded that the recent large declines in uninsurance are attributable to the Affordable Care Act. The number of uninsured children in the U.S. has been cut almost in half since 2008, according to the Center for Children & Families (CCF), part of the Health Policy Institute at the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University.
