Unemployment Rate Directly Affecting Rate of Those Insured

In Florida a study done by the Economic Policy Institute shows a trend towards dramatically declining rates of residents with insurance. Much of this trend is related to the rise in unemployment. With people losing their jobs, and as a result, their employer provided health coverage, many people will not be able to afford coverage on their own either through Cobra or through an individual policy, and will therefore remain uninsured. Workers of course will not be the only ones affected, as the children of those unemployed will also most likely lose their coverage. Currently, only about half of Florida’s children under the age of 18 have health insurance. If insurance coverage is so directly related to the current employment rate, what can be done to make insurance coverage independent of employment status?
