The percentage of uninsured children in Florida is increasing, even though most of them are eligible for government health coverage programs, according to a study by the University of Florida's Institute for Child Health Policy. The study found that 12.6 percent, or 547,984, of the children under the age of 18 in Florida are uninsured. However, 72 percent of the uninsured children in Florida are eligible for some type of public coverage.
