Future of Children: Health Insurance for All

June 10, 2003

Released April 8, this Future of Children journal argues that existing programs could solve the problem of uninsurance for most children -- if they had more funding, better outreach, and simpler enrollment. Lawmakers are currently debating the future of Medicaid; if programs are not improved, more than 900,000 children could lose coverage in the next few years. The journal includes new data on the unused federal funds for Medicaid and the state Children's Health Insurance Program, and state-by-state data and model programs.
