Take Action to Give Kids a Healthier Start
Today, 13,000 kids in low-income Virginia families don’t have comprehensive health coverage due to backward and outdated eligibility rules. We can change that!
The state budget is more than just dollar signs and numbers, it is a document that should reflect our shared priorities.
The House has failed to act on an opportunity to fund a program that would give these children a health coverage option. The Senate, on the other hand, reflects our values and prioritizes our children’s health and well-being by funding the Cover All Kids program in their proposed budget.
By funding the Cover All Kids program as the Senate budget does, we could make sure fewer families have to make impossible choices like choosing between their child’s healthcare needs or paying for household essentials like rent and food. This program would offer an option for children who are currently denied health coverage through Medicaid/Children’s Health Insurance Program due to their immigration status.
Your voice matters. Tell your lawmakers you want them to Cover All Kids by creating a health coverage program for all low-income children in Virginia regardless of immigration status.
