Children without Health Insurance - Strategic KPIsharefulton.fultoncountyga.gov | Last Updated 4 Nov 2019
This performance measure tracks the percentage of population 18 years or younger in Fulton County who did not have health insurance in the past 12 months. The data used for this measure come from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey, which defines health insurance coverage to include plans and programs that provide comprehensive health coverage. Coverage may be provided by either private health insurance or public programs. Private health insurance is a plan provided through an employer or union, a plan purchased by an individual from a private company. Public programs providing coverage include the federal programs Medicare, Medicaid, and VA Health Care; the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP); and individual state health plans.
