This video is an emotional appeal to viewers and presents an argument that is entirely inaccurate. Children are covered by insurance either through their parent’s employer, as an individual or through Medicaid. In North Carolina, fewer than 12 percent of children are uninsured but can be covered under the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). SCHIP is administered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and provides funding for uninsured children in states across the U.S., including North Carolina. While the video is touching, using children to manipulate a bottom line that is factually inaccurate is unnecessary and just plain wrong.
