The Center on Budget & Policy Priorities is one of sixteen organizations participating in Connecting Kids to Coverage, a five-year public-private campaign launched this February by Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to help the five million uninsured children who are eligible for Medicaid or CHIP to enroll in coverage. For the past sixteen years, the Center has operated an outreach campaign that worked to help make public health insurance programs more accessible to eligible families, such as by cutting red tape in the application process. Tomorrow, HHS will unveil new data from the Urban Institute that will help define the future of this new initiative.  You can watch the event at www.HHS.gov/live at 9:30a.m.
