Each year millions of children miss immunizations, screenings and well visits despite the lifelong benefits of preventive care in childhood. The Affordable Care Act expands coverage of all preventive services recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics in the Bright Futures guidelines. Yet a recent survey found that 57 percent of families are still unaware that these benefits are available free of charge through their health plans. This webinar explores private and public health plan strategies for improving parental education on preventive care and supporting and encouraging providers in ensuring their young patients receive recommended preventive services.

This webinar provides a brief overview by Karla Lopez from the Legal Action Center of the federal statutory framework, specifically in the context of integrating physical and behavioral health care.

States have made great strides in enrolling and retaining children in health coverage over the past several years.
