Alabama-based group covers uninsured children

Birmingham News, July 14, 2008
Despite many accolades, most people know little or nothing about the Alabama Child Caring Foundation. The private nonprofit group, founded by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama, enrolled its first child in March 1988 and today provides 10,000 children health coverage with low co-payments and no monthly premiums. The program is for uninsured Alabama children younger than 19 and whose parents cannot afford coverage but make too much money to qualify for government coverage through Medicaid or All Kids. Enrollment in the Child Caring Foundation is at an all-time high, but 2,000 eligible children are on the waiting list.
