Story Behind the Curve

Medical costs in the US are extremely high so people without health insurance may not be able to afford medical treatment or prescription drugs. They are also less likely to get routine checkups and screenings so if they do become ill, they will not seek treatment until the condition is more advanced and therefore more difficult and costly to treat.

This indicator shows the percentage of children under age 17 years that have any type of health insurance coverage.
