We all know that health care reform in this country is inevitable and very much needed! It has been alluded to by government for decades, and the current administration is moving quickly to bring about change.
But will that change benefit our children?
Speak Now for Kids is a non-partisan campaign aimed at ensuring that our children’s needs are included in health care reform. We must be their voice to let Congress know that children’s health care is just as important as Medicare reform and other adult care issues.
- 8.8 million children in the U.S. do not have health insurance.
- Insured children are more likely to receive preventative care, and therefore they get sick less often.
- Many adult chronic conditions have their origins in childhood.
- Even with insurance, children currently receive only 41% of preventative medical care.
