The evidence is clear: When children and families receive adequate healthcare services, the whole of society benefits. But achieving long-term population health equity won’t be simple. It will require the transformation of pediatric primary care, and the support and participation of all payers and regulators.

And it explains why it is important for all insurers to participate, and how innovative new policies can help make it happen.
