The Race to the Finish Line: Getting to 100% Health Insurance Coverage for Arkansas’s Kids

Arkansans want what’s best for our children.

We all want kids to have happy, healthy lives. Access to affordable medical care is an important part of overall health, and each Arkansan should have access to health care.

But, as shown in the data in this report, Arkansas is getting further from the Finish Line of covering 100 percent of children with health insurance. We see significant differences in who has coverage and who doesn’t along racial and ethnic lines, nativity, and between households with higher and lower incomes.

We want Arkansas to be a great place to be and raise a child. Improving access to affordable health care is a proven step in the right direction.
