Improving children's health by increasing access to timely preventive and sick visits to pediatricians during gaps in insurance coverage

Team BH4K is comprised of the board of directors whose commitment is to improve health care access for children during gaps and transitions in health care coverage. Children do not have a choice about their health care coverage and are dependent on timely health care early in life for lifelong health.

Even short gaps in health care coverage 90 plus days can be detrimental to the health of a child. For parents with uninsured children waiting for stable health care (new job, job loss, etc.) or health plans that do not cover prevention after the age of six, Better Health 4Kids provides a short term solution.

The funds raised from Team BH4K will go to support our Children's Health Fund so that children can see the pediatrician in a timely manner to receive: preventive health care screenings, immunizations, vision and hearing screenings, sick visits and treatment for minor injuries. On the average this program saves families over $350 per child while waiting for stable health care coverage.

Our goal is to help over 400 children access health care in a timely and appropriate manner and provide assistance and resources so families may find stable health coverage. Some examples of families we have helped:

  • Single mother (working) with two teens who needed immiunizations for 7th grade in order to attend school. Mom got turned away from the health department since the kids had insurance even though it would not pay for the immunizations;
  • Single mother (working) with a two week old newborn who applied for Medicaid in the hospital and now has to reapply (process that could take 90 plus days) and her baby was sick; and so many others!

Our team goal is to raise $20,000 in 30 days!
