NOTES: Data are for the civilian noninstitutionalized population. Medicaid includes State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) and state-sponsored health plans. Uninsured persons are not covered by private insurance, Medicaid, SCHIP, state-sponsored or other government-sponsored health plans, Medicare, or military plans. Persons with Indian Health Service only are considered to have no coverage. Percents do not add to 100 because the percentage of persons with Medicare, military plans, and other government-sponsored plans is not shown and because persons with both private insurance and Medicaid appear in both categories. See Appendix II, Health insurance coverage. See related Tables 137, 139, and 140.
