Covering kids & families’ mission goals and strategies 2013-2014
Covering Kids & Families operates a range of programs and convenes a statewide coalition of social services professionals, health care providers, school personnel, policy makers, and researchers that works to improve individual and population health, reduce health disparities, ensure full participation in public and other health insurance and increase access to high quality health care for all residents of Wisconsin.
All Wisconsin residents have easy-to-access, trusted and efficient mechanisms to learn about, enroll in and use health-supporting programs for which they are eligible. Because of Covering Kids & Families, Wisconsin residents demonstrate better health outcomes with reduced health disparities.
