Kids' health care lacking

Posted By on Wed, May 28, 2008 at 1:43 PM

A study out today ranks the states in 13 categories on health care for children. Arkansas ranks 44th.

This should take you to the state scorecard. We are the most likely of all states to have children facing developmental problems in early years. Overall, costs are lowest in Arkansas, factoring how much the average family spends on health care and the average health care premium. However, this might only be a function of a high number of uninsured and sick people who aren't seeking treatment. Remember the free dental clinic and the hundreds of people with huge needs who trooped in, some for their first visit ever to a dentist?
