Children's Health

Texas has more uninsured children and more uninsured people overall than any other state, and the second highest rate of uninsured children.

Children with health coverage have better access to needed care, live healthier lives, miss fewer days of school due to illness and perform better in school. Children whose parents are covered, are also more likely to get covered, stay covered and access needed health care services.

We lead statewide coalitions and campaigns in advocating for policies that ensure that all Texas children, regardless of their immigration status, race, ethnicity or family income, have access to the affordable, comprehensive health coverage and care they need to live, grow, learn, thrive and reach their potential.
