However, the majority of those who are uninsured live in households under 200% of the federal poverty level, and may be eligible for public health insurance programs, such as Medicaid and hawk-i. While Iowa has made significant progress in insuring its children, more work must be done to ensure that insurance resources reach everyone who is eligible.
