Have a Happy and Healthy New Year – we hear it often at the start of each year. Thousands of us will make New Year’s resolutions to get more exercise, lose weight, and take better care of themselves. But being healthy needs more than good wishes or willpower. It means being able to get the medical treatment you need when you need it.

This is true for kids and teens, adults and seniors. For many years, CAA has been at the legislature fighting for health insurance coverage for kids – and even with the Affordable Care Act, there is still more work to do.

Here is Graciela’s story about having health coverage in order to save her daughter’s life. Without insurance, young Samantha wouldn’t have treatment for her high blood pressure. Watch Graciela’s story here.

Your donation today will give CAA a stronger voice at the legislature so we can continue to improve children’s access to healthcare.

Thank you.
