The Center for Children and Families (CCF) is uniquely focused on the pressing issues of lack of health insurance for children and low income adults. It develops and disseminates research, strategies and ideas to improve the health of Americas low and moderate income children and families. In particular, the Center examines policies and implementation issues with respect to Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), employer-based coverage, and public-private coverage initiatives. CCF also analyzes and monitors how federal policy developments and state-based initiatives are affecting the health care coverage of Americas families. CCF is based in Georgetown University Health Policy Institute.
