Every child should be able to see a doctor when they get sick. In southeastern Pennsylvania, more than 46,000 children do not have health insurance. They have too few places to turn to when they get hurt or fall ill. Children First is closing this gap by providing resources to parents to help them get publicly funded health insurance for their children. Children First’s health insurance resources include directions on how to apply for Medical Assistance and CHIP, a child health helpline to assist families over the phone, and reports on the state of child health in the region.
