Annual Measurement and Evaluation
In early 2007, King County Executive Ron Sims, the King County Council, and community partners established the Children’s Health Initiative (CHI) to identify and enroll children in the public health insurance programs for which they were eligible. When Washington state’s new Cover All Kids law became effective on July 1, 2007, an estimated 9,000 children in King County became eligible for these public health insurance programs. The CHI immediately began helping families enroll their children in coverage and assisted them in establishing regular sources of medical and dental care. This report includes the evaluation results from January 2007 through June 2009 and is the third and final report to the King County Council on this three year initiative.
