Children of Undocumented Citizenship to get enhanced healthcare

Major health associations of Madison County have proposed to enhance health care for the children who are the non documented citizens, and also for the patients affected with different mental diseases. The aim behind this project is to increase coverage for the uninsured people and also to develop a healthy society. This article enumerates the various details of the project and the efforts of the Health Council that went behind developing it.

The chief health systems of Madison County have declared that they are intending to enhance the health care service delivery for the children who haven't got any documented citizenship. In addition to this, they are planning to organize improved mental health care facilities for the adults.

On March 9, 2009 these intended initiatives were proclaimed. These projects are a part of the mutual endeavor, which earlier stressed on offering free health care to those who are devoid of any health insurance.

The Organizers of the project declared that the doctors and hospitals will be managing the delivery of health care services for free or at a discounted rate to nearly 1,500 Madison school students, who are not able to become eligible for BadgerCare Plus, since they are non documented citizens. They will too think about grousing outpatient mental care services, in order to avoid predicament in the emergency wards.

From the year 2000 onwards, the organizations that have mutually worked as Health Council, proposed to extend a health care program. In between 2005 and 2007, this program offered care at no extra cost to around 400 people living in the Dane County, who are devoid of any health insurance.

However, the Chairperson of the Health Council; Leslie Ann Howard, has remarked that the recently expanded Medicaid program of the state, called BadgerCare Plus, was found to offer health insurance coverage to different people, who have remained without any health insurance policy for a long time.

The Health Council has therefore decided to reallocate resources and make some alterations in it, so that maximum number of uninsured people including the children can get more benefits.

Many new prospective projects were reviewed and compared against each other by the Council and then in the first week of March, 2009, it determined to concentrate on enhancing health care for the non documented children and developing superior mental health care services.

The Council has added UW Hospital, Meriter Hospital, St. Mary's Hospital, UW Medical Foundation, Dean Health System and the Group Health Cooperative.

However, as per the Council more research on intricate facts is still required to be carried out before implementing the final project. But it has been found that the task of offering health care to non documented children will surely prove successful in its attempt.

The mental health care expansion task will review the services which are accessible presently. It will also analyze the loopholes in care; formulate the Mental Health Parity Act, which will need health care policies to offer coverage for more mental care services by this year 2009.

As per surveys, it was found that 1/3rd of the mental patients do not avail proper treatment. It is expected that with the implementation of this project, more outpatient care will be offered that will help in minimizing further crisis.
