Individuals who are eligible for Medicaid and CHIP can enroll in health coverage any day of the year. The Open Enrollment period for qualified health plans in the Marketplace is coming to a close – but it’s important to be sure families with Medicaid-eligible children and teens know that it’s not too late to apply for coverage. Parents who are eligible for Medicaid can sign up as well!
During this webinar we will discuss plans for a Connecting Kids to Coverage National Campaign outreach push this spring. We’ll feature new resources to help you spread the enrollment message and we’ll hear from partner organizations on how they plan to ramp up their enrollment efforts in the weeks and months ahead. Featured speakers include the Foundation for Positively Kids, based in Las Vegas, who will share their plans to work with local schools and other community programs this spring to enroll eligible children and teens. We will also hear from the Children’s Defense Fund-Texas, about how to use real stories of families benefiting from Medicaid and CHIP to raise awareness of these programs among eligible families and others.
