Central Ohio public health advocates gained some political support on Monday to keep funding intact for a children’s health insurance program.
U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown visited a south side health center to promote continued federal funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program. It helps low income workers purchase health care for their children.
“These are parents who make $9, and $10, $11 an hour whose employers don’t offer health insurance and who don’t make enough money themselves to pay for it,” Brown said.
