After fifteen years, we have a new logo! We’re saying goodbye to the umbrella, a representation of coverage, and moving to imagery of connection.

The linked dots in the new logo show that Covering Kids and Families is always working to be a bridge: we connect the experiences of community-based organizations with state agencies, grassroots with grass tops, direct-service workers with policy makers. We make connections and collaborate on improvements for health coverage in Colorado.

We’ll be rolling out this new logo over the next month – including at Building Better Health Conference next week. Stay tuned for more!

Trump Administration 'Public Charge' Rule Threatens Health Care for Immigrant Families, Including U.S. Citizen Children

Any day now, we expect the release of a proposed public charge rule that would count health benefits towards public charge determinations. Review @FamiliesUSA’s fact sheet to learn about this rule’s potential impact: http://bit.ly/2NWFBKv #PublicCharge

The impact of a proposed Trump administration rule extends well beyond the directly targeted individuals and families whose health will be at risk. A community’s overall health depends on the health of all of its members. The impact of this proposed rule will spill over to others in many ways. Wit...

In many states, parents must sign their kids up for the programs to receive coverage…and to sign their kids up, parents must know that their kids are eligible.
