A new report from Georgetown University shows the number of uninsured Ohio children rose by 28 percent from 2016 to 2018. 

Nearly half a million more children were uninsured in 2018 than in 2017, according to data out Tuesday from the U.S. Census Bureau. The drop stems primarily from a decline in the number of children covered by public programs such programs as Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program.

Time is running out for Congress to approve more funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program before the money dries up.
