- In 2013, an estimated 349,809 (12.3 percent) Kansans did not have health insurance coverage, which is not a significant change from 2012. However, the rate is significantly lower than the national rate (14.5 percent).
- More than half (51.6 percent) of all Kansans are covered through employment-based health insurance, and 29.5 percent of Kansans are covered through public health insurance programs like Medicare or Medicaid.
- Most uninsured Kansas adults (77.7 percent) are working.
- The percent of young adults age 19–25 without health insurance in Kansas continues to decline (28.2 percent in 2010 compared to 21.5 percent in 2013); this follows the national trend in insurance coverage for this age group that can now obtain coverage through their parents’ plans until age 26.
- Hispanic Kansans are more than two and a half times more likely to be uninsured than White, non-Hispanic Kansans (26.8 percent compared to 9.6 percent).
