Part of the Kaiser Incremental Health Reform Project, this paper describes an approach to expanding health insurance coverage for low-income children that combines a tax credit with a publicly-sponsored program. Design and implementation issues are explored-including how to generate high participation among eligible children and the ability to target public dollars to those meeting particular income criteria-and coverage and cost estimates are presented.
