Problem statement
Problem Statement:

  • The 2001 Current Population Survey revealed that 9.1 million US children less than 19 years of age—or 11.8% of the 76,616,883 total child population—do not have health insurance (This number is increasing with our current economic down turn).

  • Uninsured children are less likely to receive preventive care, are less likely to use needed health care services, and are more vulnerable to health problems.

  • This is alarming, because it is well documented that availability of, and access to, quality health care has a direct impact on the health of families and children.

  • American Academy of Pediatrics Division of Health Policy Research analysis of March Demographic File, 2001 Current Population Survey.

  • Newacheck PW, Stoddard JJ, Huges DC, Pearl M. Health insurance and access to primary care for children. New England Journal of Medicine. 1998; 338(8):513-9
