All Health Care is Local

California Children’s Health Initiative

Just like politics, all health care is local. What the Children’s Health Initiatives have learned over the past decade of working to enroll California’s children in health care coverage, is that the best information, talent and resources to do so are found in the communities across California.

This is of critical importance as California leads the nation to implement the Affordable Care Act. New provisions are coming on-line, new health care infrastructure is being created and as we approach 2014, greater emphasis will be placed on outreach and enrollment at the local and county level to reach adults as well as children. That is where we come in.
