On behalf of the Universal Coverage for California’s Children Coalition, Kaiser Permanente Cares for Kids (KPCK) asked the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research (the Center) to study the attitudes, perceptions, and opinions of Californians with incomes between 200% – 275% of the federal poverty level about the value of health insurance for their children. Focus groups were conducted with Latino and non-Latino white (white) adults living in Los Angeles who were married, with at least one parent working full- time for the year, and who were fluent in English. These populations were selected because they are the most likely to have uninsured children.
