Report: More Children In SD Have Insurance

Report: More Children In SD Have Insurance
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A national report shows more children in South Dakota had health insurance in 2012 than in 2008.

The share of uninsured children fell to 4.2 percent in 2012 from 9.2 percent in 2008. That translates to one in 24 children remaining uninsured.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation report released Thursday is based on the most recent data available from the American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau.

The report said the decline of uninsured children in the state compares favorably to the national average. It fell from 9.7 percent to 7.5 percent in 2012.

While more children obtained coverage between 2008 and 2012, how they got it has changed. In South Dakota, for example, 24.1 percent of children received public health insurance compared to 29.1 percent in 2012.
