North Dakota KIDS COUNT is part of KIDS COUNT, a national and state-by-state effort to track the status of children, sponsored by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. Our mission is to provide accurate, current data on child well-being in order to inform local and state discussions about how to secure better futures for all of North Dakota’s children.
The Insights on Children publication released in March focuses on North Dakota children ages 0 through 18 without health insurance by county. Access to health insurance and quality health care is important for children as they develop and grow into adulthood. The good news is that the majority of children in North Dakota are covered by some form of health insurance and half of the uninsured are potentially eligible for a form of public health coverage. The challenge facing many families seeking quality health care in North Dakota is that all coverage is not equal. See the publication and the news release
