Cause for alarm: Tens of thousands of Ohio children have lost health insurance

Way to go, Ohio.

Thousands more of Ohio’s youngest children have no health insurance coverage, reversing a multi-year trend of declining uninsured rates for those under age 6.

The Buckeye State’s uninsured rate for infants, toddlers and preschoolers climbed to 5% in 2018, up from 3.6% in 2016, a 40% jump that ranked as third highest in the nation.

That totals 41,642 children without health coverage, an increase of nearly 12,000 in two years, according to a recent study from the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families.

“This trend is deeply disturbing because we know children experience rapid brain development during the earliest years of life, before they start kindergarten,” said Shannon Jones, executive director of Groundwork Ohio, a leading child advocacy group.

***********. I call BS on what Ms. Corcoran says .... that rising incomes means that there’s not as much need for Medicaid as before. If that were the case, MORE children would have health insurance, not fewer.
