Abstract: The uninsurance rate in Missouri has been decreasing over the last decade, largely due to the implementation of the Missouri's Children's Health Insurance Plan (CHIP). This program expanded Medicaid services to many throughout the state who were previously unable to obtain health insurance publicly or privately. After its first two years of implementation, the uninsurance rate in Missouri decreased by 12.93% outpacing the U.S. average by 4.86%.
