Car Seat Checks for Child Passenger Safety Week

As a mom, this is a sobering fact: Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death for children age 1 to 13 in the USA.

This past Spring, many Americans found the freedom that came with getting their health insurance covered. During the Open Enrollment season that ended on March 31, Americans that were previous uninsured were able to find affordable health care to meet their health needs and the needs of their families. A new Open Enrollment for healthcare coverage will open again in the Fall, but many Americans are unaware that Medicaid and CHIP are open year-round and special enrollment is ongoing. The Ad Council is working with Get Covered America to spread the word about these “qualifying life events.” Many Americans don’t realize that they may qualify for enrolling in health insurance because they’ve had a change in … Read entire article »
