2022 Saw Increase in Number of Uninsured Children in Pennsylvania

The number of uninsured children in the state increased from 2021 to 2022, according to a report by the Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children. The rate of children in Pennsylvania without health insurance increased significantly from 4.4% to 5.2%, despite Medicaid enrollees having uninterrupted access to health insurance that connects them to doctor visits, immunizations, and well-visits that screen for physical and mental health. The finding was included in the partnership’s State of Children’s Health report. Based on the data, Pennsylvania has the fifth highest number of uninsured children in the nation. Learn more.
