Opinion: Alameda County Is Working To Insure Children
"Today, nearly 13,000 children in Alameda County are eligible for health coverage but they are not enrolled," Wilma Chan -- Alameda County supervisor and chair of the county's Health Committee -- writes in an Oakland Tribune opinion piece. Chan discusses the benefits associated with providing health insurance coverage to children. She writes, "We need to simplify enrollment and renewal and reduce unnecessary barriers to coverage." Chan adds, "We are looking to learn how to maximize use of the One-E-App and find ways to ensure efficient completion of applications for health coverage."
