August 30, 2016: U.S. Departments of Education and Health and Human Services to Discuss How School & Districts Can Enroll Students in Health Coverage Through School Registration

School-aged children (ages 6-17) are more likely than younger children to be uninsured, and account for nearly three out of four uninsured children in the nation. This discussion will focus on how schools and districts have an opportunity to help close these gaps.
