This policy brief highlights regional variations of rates among California children ages 0-5 and ages 6-17 from limited income families (below 300% FPL) who were uninsured and not eligible for Medi-Cal or Healthy families in 2001. This Web-only publication is relevant to policy makers and children health advocates who work on health access and children’s issues at the local level. These data are particularly pertinent as public-private partnerships have emerged across California to provide health care coverage for this vulnerable population. Rates of uninsured-and-not eligible children were estimated using the 2001 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS 2001).
