(UNDATED) - Some surprising data concerning health insurance and Indiana children.

According to two federal surveys the percentage of Indiana kids without health insurance is better than the national average.

Bill Stanczykiewicz with the Indiana Youth Institute says a majority of Indiana children without insurance are eligible for existing plans but are not signed up.

The US Census Bureau reports that 8 percent of Hoosier children are uninsured.

The national average is 12 percent.

Despite the good news there are still over 50 thousand children who are uninsured and ineligible for current plans.
