State Medicaid Fact Sheets

These fact sheets detail the importance of the Medicaid program to the health care for children in every state, as well as the critical role of children's hospitals and pediatricians in serving all children. More than one in four children rely on the Medicaid program for their health care and more than two-thirds of the nation's uninsured children are eligible for Medicaid or the State Children's Health Insurance Program. Particularly as states continue to face enormous fiscal pressures, it is important that policymakers and citizens are aware of the importance of Medicaid to children in their state and the rest of the country.
