  Access Gaps Among Uninsured Children in Los Angeles County: Baseline Findings from the 2002/2003 Los Angeles County Health Survey
Summary: Six of ten low-income, uninsured children in Los Angeles County had difficulty accessing needed medical care in 2002/2003.

This analysis suggests that children enrolled in the Healthy Kids program would have fewer unmet health and dental needs and would be more likely to receive well- child and regular care.

  How Far Can Healthy Kids Program Go in Closing Coverage Gaps for Children in Los Angeles County?
Summary: One in every ten children in Los Angeles County lacked health insurance coverage in 2002/2003. This brief uses Los Angeles County Health Survey data to assess how these children could be reached. Findings suggest that the Healthy Kids Program and L.A.'s Children's Health Initiative have the potential to substantially reduce uninsurance rates for L.A.'s children without eroding private coverage. A renewed push to enroll more children in public health programs could also reduce the uninsurance rate variations -especially with respect to citizenship status.
