Covering Uninsured Children: Reaching and Enrolling Citizen Children With Non-Citizen Parents
This issue brief examines health insurance coverage for low-income citizen children whose parents are not citizens and some of the specific barriers to enrolling these children in Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. It is based on findings from the Kaiser Survey of Children’s Health Coverage, a telephone survey of parents conducted in 2007 to learn more about children’s access to coverage and care and the health care cost-related pressures facing their families.
