Coverage for All Kids

Coverage for All Kids – On March 13, 2007, Governor Christine Gregoire signed landmark legislation to create a new, unified Children’s Health Program to ensure that every child in Washington has health care coverage and a “medical home” by 2010. In partnership with the Children’s Alliance, Solid Ground and other stakeholders, Cedar River Group helped to shape progressive features of the bill that will combine several different children’s health programs into one, streamline eligibility and administration, and link provider payment to services that have proven effective in improving health status. The bill extended care to 38,000 more children in the state who were uninsured when it took effect.
