COVID-19 has placed an unprecedented stress on the United States’ health system. Children and their families are being affected directly and indirectly by this pandemic. In 2018, 4.3 million children didn’t have health insurance and 37 million children relied on Medicaid to cover their health-related expenses. Due to the economic impacts of COVID-19, children’s hospitals are bracing for and seeing an increased need for charitable care. As more families lose insurance coverage due to job loss, children’s hospitals are seeing increased costs as government programs don’t fully cover the cost of caring for kids.
Your local children’s hospital needs your support now more than ever. By funding children’s hospitals, we can transform how we meet the urgent needs brought on by the pandemic, while also maintaining an exceptional standard of care and preventing and preparing for health challenges to come.
