2014 12 12 CHIP Medicaid Uninsured Kids Chart

The uninsured rate for children in 1997 was 14%. In part due to the implementation of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), that percentage has continually declined to 7.1% in 2013. Nearly 3 million children could lose health coverage if CHIP funding is not extended.
