Immigrant Children & Pregnant Women


CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE forced to wait for health care. Timely coverage can mean the difference between preventing or treating conditions that can affect a child’s long-term prospects for a healthy productive life, and leaving those conditions undetected and untreated. When a child is denied quality care, we may miss the opportunity to diagnose and treat them for conditions such as asthma, autism, and hearing impairments; conditions with life-long consequences for children’s health and well-being.
