In 2017, 4.5 percent of Colorado children did not have health insurance. While Colorado’s rate of uninsured children fell by two thirds in the last decade, our progress has stalled and the rate has hovered around 4.4 percent since 2015. Insurance coverage continues to vary widely for children across the state as well: in 2017, Douglas County had the lowest uninsured rate for children with 2.4 percent, while 15 percent of children in Baca County went without health insurance. To find the uninsured rate for children in your county, please visit the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
