Increasing Medicaid & CHIP Enrollment in Hispanic Communities

September 14, 2016

While there has been steady progress in reducing the number of uninsured Hispanic children in the United States, access to and enrollment in health coverage for Hispanic children and families continues to be disproportionately lower than other demographics. Hispanic children are one and a half times as likely to be uninsured than all other children. The Connecting Kids to Coverage National Campaign assembled a panel to discuss strategies to increase Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program enrollment for Hispanic children, with a special emphasis on developing messaging and activities that resonate with Hispanic families.
