KidsWell Campaign Launches Website and Online Resource Hub for Health Reform Implementation

Posted June, 29 2011 by arianne

KidsWell, a campaign dedicated to the successful implementation of federal health reform for America’s children, launched, a website monitoring state and national health care reform implementation and opposition across the country. Check it out!

CSS, SCAA, and CDF-NY are partners of the KidsWell Coalition, a diverse network of state and national organizations supported by The Atlantic Philanthropies and working on behalf of children to increase health coverage and ensure successful implementation of health care reform. This is the campaign that is supporting the work behind the Children, Youth and Families Task Force of HCFANY.

The website focuses on health insurance coverage programs and provisions under the Affordable Care Act, including Medicaid, the Child Health Insurance Program, Health Benefit Exchanges, and health insurance regulatory reforms.  It was designed to support child health advocates, but also provides transparency and accountability on health care reform implementation more broadly, benefitting policy makers, researchers and the public.
