The annual rate of uninsured children fell during the pandemic from about 5% in 2019 to about 4% in 2021, which translates to about 700,000 fewer uninsured children, according to a new report published Wednesday by the Urban Institute.

The pandemic and associated job losses had the potential to increase uninsurance among American families and therefore increase children’s coverage losses, but public coverage increased among children from early 2019 to early 2021, according to the report.

The report used data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and the Current Population Survey (CPS) Annual Social and Economic Supplement as well as data on children’s enrollment in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and ACA marketplace coverage through early 2022.
