    Rising health care costs and the related problems of increased dependency on health insurance coverage has remained at the forefront of the U.S. policy agenda. However, President Clinton’s 1994 health care reform proposal was unsuccessful, and current Legislative proposals to cut the rate of growth of Medicare and Medicaid spending while the eligible population and costs both continue to grow fails to address the problem of coverage. In fact, one likely side effect of shifting the burden of coverage to private insurance carriers will be to increase the ranks of the uninsured. This paper addresses one aspect of this problem: specifically, how the competing interests of public and private coverage for single mothers affect their willingness to participate in the labor market, particularly when considered in conjunction with recent legislation eliminating the Federal entitlement to welfare.

    A child's early years are the time to nurture optimum growth and development and to be on the lookout for any problems that require medical attention to prevent them from becoming major health concerns. Staff of early childhood programs, such as Head Start, child care centers, family child care homes, child care resource and referral agencies, and others, have an important role to play in assuring the health of children in their care. Parents often rely on early childhood professionals whom they know and trust for advice and help in finding health care for their children. But, obtaining medical services, especially preventive care, can be difficult, or next to impossible, without insurance. (author introduction)

    Year: 2000

    Objectives. This study sought to determine whether there is a relationship between state policies on Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), declines in both TANF and Medicaid caseloads, and the rise in the number of uninsured. Methods. Extant data sources of state TANF policies, TANF and Medicaid participation, and uninsurance rates were analyzed, with the state as the unit of analysis. The independent variables included state TANF policies that directly address receipt of benefits or relate to health; dependent variables included changes in state TANF enrollment, Medicaid enrollment, and health insurance status since the enactment of the law. Results. In the bivariate analysis, declines in Medicaid were associated with sanction for work noncompliance, lack of a child care guarantee, and strategies to deter TANF enrollment; this last factor was also associated with increased uninsurance. In the multivariate analysis, lack of a child care guarantee and deterrent strategies predicted TANF declines; deterrent strategies predicted Medicaid decline and uninsurance increases....

In the multivariate analysis, lack of a child care guarantee and deterrent strategies predicted TANF declines; deterrent strategies predicted Medicaid decline and uninsurance increases. Conclusions. This analysis suggests that policies deterring TANF enrollment may contribute to declines in Medicaid and increased uninsurance. To maintain health insurance for the poor, policymakers should consider revising policies that deter TANF enrollment. (author abstract)
