Number Of U.S. Kids Who Don’t Have Health Insurance Is On The Rise

The number of children in the United States without health insurance jumped to 3.9 million in 2017 from about 3.6 million the year before, according to census data.

Economic growth usually means more kids get health insurance, but that’s not been the case during the Trump years, a study shows. For the first time in a decade, the uninsured rate for children is up.
