Today, First Focus Campaign for Children sent a letter to Rep. Kim Schrier, author of the Kids’ Access to Primary Care Act of 2023 (H.R.952) to express our support for the bill.

Excerpt from the letter:

Children’s health needs are unique. In the earliest years of their lives, they are rapidly developing. That development sets the foundation for the rest of their lives. If they are not consistently getting periodic, age-appropriate primary care visits, that foundation is weakened, potentially leading to costlier physical and behavioral health issues down the line. A prerequisite to ensuring children are receiving care that helps their early development is to ensure they have consistent access to primary care services.
