Half of uninsured children reside in immigrant families as per the study

In the United States, a study in the March issue of Medical Care reported that children from immigrant families now account for 42% of uninsured children. This journal is mainly published by Lippincott Williams as a part of Wolters Kluwer Health. According to an assessment of nationwide survey data by Eric E. Seiber, PhD, of the Ohio State University College of Public Health, Columbus that More that 2/3rd of uninsured children with colonists parents are the US citizens. The author writes that, “ Initiatives expand coverage or increased Medicaid and CHIP uptake will require decision makers to develop new policy and outreach approaches to enroll these children so they do not fall behind.” By this definition, nearly 1/4th of all the US children were living in colonist families in 2010. In it, 86% of children were native citizens and the remaining were naturalized citizens of US. Therefore, only twelve percent of children in colonists families were non-populace of US.
