In the past few years, millions of eligible children have gained access to free or low-cost health care through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Unfortunately, more than three million eligible children are still not enrolled, including many Latino children.
NCLR is delighted to join Salud Today and The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Connecting Kids to Coverage National Campaign in hosting a live Twitter chat on Tuesday, September 15. From 1:00 to 2 p.m. EDT, users can tweet questions, ideas, and their own experiences surrounding this crisis facing our children.
We’ll discuss the importance of health coverage for children, the crucial information families need in order to receive insurance and care, health care issues impacting Latino families in the United States, and how you can help spread the word to families with eligible children.
Join us on Tuesday, September 15 to learn how you can help close the health care gap and make sure all eligible children—and parents, too—get the coverage and care they need. Be sure to use the hashtag #SaludTues to follow the conversation on Twitter and share your stories, ideas, and resources that can help connect our children with the care they so desperately need.
