Radio Remarks on the "Insure Kids Now" Initiative

February 23, 1999

As every parent knows, nothing is more important than keeping our children healthy. So I have very good news for working parents. Even if you can't afford private health insurance, it's now possible to get help with doctor bills, medicines, and hospital care for your children. If your children are uninsured, please call 1- 877-KIDS-NOW—1-877-KIDS-NOW. With a little help, your children can get the care they need to grow up healthy and strong.

NOTE: The President's remarks were recorded at approximately 2:54 p.m. in the Oval Office on February 22 for later broadcast as a public service announcement. The transcript was released by the Office of the Press Secretary on February 23. These remarks were also made available on the White House Press Office Radio Actuality Line.
