Reaching and Enrolling Eligible Teens Webinar

February 12, 2014
Eligible teens are less likely to be enrolled in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) than younger children. This webinar explored reasons why this age group is particularly challenging to enroll in these programs. Organizations shared strategies to reach teens and their parents by collaborating with schools, community organizations and other groups that work with teens. A new teen-specific Connecting Kids to Coverage Campaign flyer and other resources were highlighted.
