NATIVE HEALTH receives CMS award

NATIVE HEALTH has received a grant to enroll eligible children in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), as part of the Connecting Kids to Coverage campaign.

NATIVE HEALTH will expand outreach and enrollment best practices from their current Connecting Kids to Coverage Outreach and Enrollment grant, which focuses on urban dwelling Native American/Alaska Native children, to also include Latino children and families in Maricopa County. In addition, NATIVE HEALTH will build on existing relationships with community groups by providing direct application assistance.
The Connecting Kids to Coverage outreach and enrollment awards will support targeted strategies needed to enroll eligible children who do not have health coverage, including application assistance and targeted outreach. Awardees include states, school districts, and local community organizations from across the country in areas where access to health coverage has been lagging, including among American Indians, children with learning disabilities, children living in rural communities, and teens.
