Salud Tuesday Aims to Enroll Millions More Children into Affordable Health Care Programs

Connecting Latino Kids to Health Coverage (1)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.
