Impact of Medicaid on Children: Latest Research Findings

Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) provide health coverage to more than one-third of the children in the United States. The vast majority of these children, more than 90 percent, are covered through Medicaid. A large body of research shows that access to Medicaid in childhood leads to longer, healthier lives, a better chance to finish high school and college, and more prosperous futures for our children.
