4.14 Health Care Coverage

This page includes data that provide two perspectives on the need for health insurance coverage. The first data set, from the U.S. Census Bureau, includes the percentage of adults (ages 18 to 64 2016 and earlier; 19-64 2017 and later) and children (under age 18 in 2016 and earlier; under age 19 in 2017 and later) without health insurance coverage. The second dataset, from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, includes the average monthly Medicaid enrollment. Medicaid is a federal government insurance program for persons of all ages whose income and resources are insufficient to pay for health care.

U.S. Census Bureau, Population Estimates


The U.S. Census Bureau changed the age definitions starting in 2017.  ‘Children’ now includes under age 19 and ‘Adults’ are 19-64 years.  The population size for Calumet is too small for U.S. Census Bureau 1 Year Estimates and Calumet is therefore omitted from the adult and youth Health Insurance Coverage charts.
