Healthcare Coverage Is Important

Children need to be healthy to reach their full potential. To stay healthy, they need to have regular medical, vision and dental checkups. They should also receive proper care when sick or injured. By preventing serious illnesses, household health costs are also usually lower.

Children who have healthcare coverage have a better chance of being and staying healthy, and are less likely to miss school because they are sick. By helping them go to school every day ready to learn, you can help boost your child's performance in school today and in the future.
