CALIFORNIA HEALTHLINE: California Advocates Seek Information on Children’s Exchange Plans

Pediatric coverage benefits offered through the Affordable Care Act’s exchange plans vary widely across the country – and so far, there is little data to show whether or not these variations are creating gaps in the children’s care here.

California children’s advocates have asked for more data from Covered California, the state’s insurance marketplace. They’ll use that information to identify any coverage gaps that can be sealed when California has the opportunity to revisit the requirements for children’s care, likely in 2016.

Kathleen Hamilton of the Santa Monica-based nonprofit The Children’s Partnership said she’s interested in seeing if these plans share the same dental challenges plaguing young Medi-Cal patients, more than half of whom did not receive dental care through the program in 2013, according to a state audit.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking
    about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your
    blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of
    your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking
    for. Do you offer guest writers to write content for you?
    I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write about here.

    Again, awesome web log!

    Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
