Insure Every Child

The number of uninsured children in Pennsylvania has spiked to over 145,000 and continues to climb.

Pennsylvania must ensure all children are covered for healthcare.  This includes all children who are currently uninsured and also children who do not have citizenship documentation.

The impact of this growing number of 145,000 uninsured children equates to over $385 million in uncompensated care which weakens our hospital systems.  Uninsured children fare far worse than insured children – experiencing poorer health in childhood, greater rates of avoidable hospitalizations and higher childhood mortality.

Pennsylvania can save over $724M by insuring all children for healthcare.
