uninsured children

Florida Healthy Kids

When it comes to children getting insurance, there’s good news and bad news. The good news: the number of uninsured children in Florida has dropped—as it has across the county. The bad news: Florida remains near the top of states with the number of kids who don’t have health insurance.

A new report from Georgetown University says when it comes to reducing the number of children without health insurance, Florida has a long way to go. The state has one of the worst rates in the nation for uninsured children but a coalition of groups called KidsWell Florida,  is launching a campaign to change the trend.
