Adults aren't the only ones struggling to secure health insurance. A report from the Oregon Health & Science University reveals that 6.7 million children in the U.S. are without health insurance.


The report also stated that 25 percent of children with health insurance are not adequately covered.


Many of these children are eligible for coverage through state-funded health insurance programs for low-income families. Visit the Children's Health Insurance Program website for more information.
