Covering Kids & Families

Do your kids have the health insurance they need?

If not, your kids are not alone. 8.4 million Children in the U.S. are uninsured. More than half are African American or Hispanic. The good news is that many families are eligible for low-cost or free health care coverage but may not realize it.

Major League Soccer and the Columbus Crew want to bring this message to soccer fans around the country: Health care coverage may just be a phone call away - even for working families.

For the last two months, Major League Soccer and Covering Kids & Families have been signing kids up for health care coverage in every state including Ohio.

In fact, this is so important that the Crew is declaring October 1 Children's Health Care Coverage Day at Crew Stadium, as part of Budweiser Hispanic Heritage Night, and there will be important information available on how to sign up your kids. as you cheer for the Black & Gold, they will cheer back for the fans who take steps to enroll their kids in health care coverage programs.

Parents, help us put children's health care coverage at the top of your back-to-school check list by calling Toll-Free 1(877) KIDS-NOW to find out if your uninsured kids are eligible.
