Here at Children’s Hospital Colorado, advocacy is a core part of our hospital mission to care for kids. This is why we work beyond our hospital walls to ensure a better world for children.
We have a responsibility to advocate on behalf of our patients and families, our community and all kids, not only because it’s an investment in our nation’s future, but because it’s the right thing to do. This includes speaking up clearly and powerfully for kids when public policy decisions are made.
As a nonpartisan organization, we hope to serve as a resource for voters and elected officials alike on the unique needs of children. Above all, we advocate for ensuring kids are represented in conversations about the future of healthcare in America.
We believe that no child should lose health insurance because of changes to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or Medicaid. All eligible children should have health insurance coverage, whether through private insurance, Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) or other programs.
Health insurance coverage is vital because it enables children to access the services they need to grow up healthy and strong, particularly in their prenatal and early formative years of life.
