Indiana Health Insurance Quotes
Much like its neighbor Ohio, the overall health in Indiana has been on the decline in recent decades. Indiana ranks in the bottom ten in the smoking rate of its residents, children in poverty, air pollution, public health funding, early prenatal care, and preventable hospitalizations. Worse, healthcare in Indiana doesn’t have any highly ranked statistics to offset the negatives. Indiana is only above average in binge drinking, violent crime, infectious disease, and uninsured residents, none of which are high enough to create any real state pride about. The combination of a high percentage of children in poverty and low public health funding presents a significant challenge for healthcare in Indiana. The high percentage of children in poverty is particularly bleak, because it does not present Indiana with a very healthy future. Hopefully, Indiana can dedicate greater effort to improving the health of its residents by investing in healthcare education and greater levels of public health funding.
One of the bright spots in the Indiana healthcare statistics is the uninsured rate, which the Kaiser Foundation claims to be 14%. This rate is still high, but below the national average of 16%. A higher percentage of Indianans carry employer-based insurance or are enrolled in Medicare, which may explain this low statistic. Unfortunately for Indiana residents, its outcomes currently outrank its healthcare determinants. Often, in this situation, it indicates that a decline in overall health is imminent, which results in higher healthcare costs for all. Luckily, Indiana residents still have a wide range of healthcare plans that are rated highly by the NCQA:
