Make KidCare Available Sooner

Getting rid of the five-year waiting period for children of legal immigrants to get health coverage through KidCare will improve health outcomes and save money, writes Cindy Arenberg Seltzer, president/CEO of the Children's Services Council of Broward County, in a column in the South Florida Sun Sentinel. Seltzer is urging lawmakers to pass measures that would eliminate the waiting period and give KidCare to more than 25,000 children.
