Health reform is taking shape in a way that could leave millions of children worse–rather than better–off at the same time that insurance companies and drug companies stand to make billions in additional profits. Under the current health proposals, millions of children could face higher costs for health coverage and have fewer benefits. Health care reform is complicated, but ensuring that children have access to the health care they need to grow up healthy is not. This factsheet details the three elements that would make it simple for all children to enroll in affordable and comprehensive health coverage, no matter what type of health care system Congress decides to implement.
