A new report by Georgetown University found that Oregon decreased its uninsured kids by three percent from 2009 to 2011.

 

Regan Gray with "Children First for Oregon" says Oregon expanded its kids covered with health insurance in the last couple years through the "Healthy Kids" program.  It has increased coverage for kids in Oregon by 112-thousand.

 

Despite strides, 60-thousand kids in the state still lack health insurance.

 

The study found twenty states showed significant declines in their rates of uninsurance among children over the last couple years.
