Covering Kids & Families with Health Insurance is Goal of Back to School Outreach Campaign
Date:8/19/2009

DETROIT, Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- As Michigan's children head back to school, the Michigan Cover the Uninsured Network (MCTUN) and some of the state's leading organizations are making a special outreach effort to ensure that eligible children and families have access to free and/or low cost health coverage through the state's Medicaid and MIChild programs. More than 45 million people in the United States are uninsured. More than one million people --- including 160,000 children --- are uninsured in Michigan.

As a consequence, they miss school and miss out on essential learning."

Organizers of the Covering Kids & Families Michigan outreach campaign state that many of Michigan's 160,000 uninsured children are eligible for low-cost health care coverage through Medicaid or MIChild, the State's Children Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).

Determining if a family or a child is eligible --- and enrollment --- for free or low cost coverage, is a matter of accessing the internet at www.healthcare4mi.com or calling 1-888-988-6300. The process is quick and easy, taking 30 minutes or less.

"Many parents are unaware of the free and low cost health coverage programs available to them," says Douglas Halladay, director of the Michigan Cover the Uninsured Network. "With the economy worsening, working families are losing access to care, for
