A spirited "virtual" rally was held today around a new campaign in California to help the state's school and child-care leaders raise awareness about new health coverage options available under California's new health insurance exchange, Covered California. The "ALL IN" Campaign is believed to be the most extensive effort in the nation currently underway in schools to educate and support children and their parents in the ways they can get the greatest health benefit from the new law. It is estimated that, under the new law, more than 5.3 million Californians may now be eligible for Covered California and nearly 3 million more children and adults for Medi-Cal. But despite an encouraging initial response by people seeking health coverage this month, many are still unaware of the potential benefits.
