InsureKidsNow.gov provides information about Medicaid and CHIP services for families who need health insurance coverage. These programs are designed to be affordable for families who are not able to afford health insurance coverage in the private market or do not have coverage available to them. Even if you've been turned down in the past, you may be able to get health coverage for your child now.

Tens of millions of Americans stand to benefit from more accessible and affordable health care in the wake of health reform, creating an historic opportunity to improve the health and well-being of a significant portion of our society. However, getting all individuals into the health system will not be easy. Experience from previous reforms suggests that there are significant barriers that prevent many people from enrolling - and staying enrolled - in health coverage, and that federal and state governments will need assistance to fully address the "enrollment gap." We believe the enrollment gap can be addressed by creating a seamless consumer-friendly enrollment process, and by making a coordinated, concerted and wide-reaching effort to ensure that Americans know how and where to sign up for coverage.
http://www.enrollamerica.org. Enroll America is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to ensure that all Americans are enrolled in and retain health coverage. Enroll America is a collaborative organization, working with partners that span the gamut of health coverage stakeholders - health insurers, hospitals, doctors, pharmaceutical companies, employers, consumer groups, faith-based organizations, civic organizations and philanthropies - to engage many different voices in support of an easy, accessible and widely available enrollment process.

Information is power, which is why Voices created the Child Advocacy Glossary of Terms. It is important that people understand terminology in this field in order to feel confident when advocating for better public policies for their children and families.
The glossary is updated periodically because the landscape of public policy is everchanging.
