Sources of Insurance Coverage Among Children of Recent Welfare Recipients
- Author(s): McConville, Shannon
- et al.
This issue brief analyzes the coverage sources of children of recent welfare recipients in Los Angeles County and examines the relationship between parents and children's sources of coverage by addressing three primary policy questions.
1)How does the source of coverage of parents who were recent welfare recipients affect the source of coverage for their children?
2)Do parents who are off welfare and no longer covered by Medi-Cal maintain public insurance coverage for their children?
3) How do combinations of coverage sources for recent welfare recipients and their children differ by recipient employment outcomes?
