A Vital Partnership
Every child in Alaska deserves to have the best start in life, but Alaska consistently ranks in the top five states with the most uninsured children. Kids who are uninsured are more likely to have unmet health needs which can lead to lifelong challenges, and we want to turn this around. That’s why Alaska Children’s Trust partnered with Alaska 2-1-1 to launch the Denali KidCare help text line.
If a child in your care is currently uninsured, text KIDCARE to 898-211 to see if they are eligible to receive FREE health care and receive free, confidential support from a United Way Healthcare Navigator to enroll in the program.
