A new report from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Urban Institute finds 87 percent of Medicaid-eligible children in Indiana have health insurance.
That might sound like a substantial figure, but 32 states have participation rates for that same group above 90 percent. Indiana ranks 44th for its childrens’ Medicaid coverage.
About 4 out of 10 kids in Indiana receive Medicaid coverage...that’s approximately 650,000 people.
And experts say there some are still slipping through the cracks. Almost 9 percent of Medicaid-eligible children remain uninsured.
