Nevada has one of the highest rates of uninsured residents in the nation—nearly 23 percent, according to Census Bureau data from 2011. About a quarter of the state's uninsured are children. Uninsured people have limited options when it comes to getting health care in Nevada. Many local doctors volunteer some of their time and resources to treating uninsured patients, and there are a number of local nonprofit clinics that offer services for free or on a sliding scale.
