Transportation Barriers to Health Care Access

Health care services will not be effective unless patients can actually reach the doctors and nurses who will take care of them.  Children’s Health Fund has determined that every year, 9% of children in families with income less than $50,000 per year missed routine health care due to lack of transportation.  Backed by its innovative research, policy and program development efforts, Children’s Health Fund is engaging federal policymakers ensure that millions of newly insured children have access to the transportation services they need to reach health care services.
