KidsWell Partners Publish Report on Uninsured Hispanic Children

CCF, NCLR: The Georgetown Center on Children and Families and the National Council of La Raza released a report showing the percentage of uninsured Hispanic children has steadily declined over the past five years. According to the report, 590,000 more Hispanic kids had coverage in 2013 than 2009, but more than 2 million remain uninsured. The report recommends: making the outreach and enrollment process available in high-quality Spanish; clarifying that families can apply for health coverage for their children regardless of their immigration status and without fear of retribution; and providing community-based enrollment assistance.
