Family health & safety

There are lots of ways you can keep your family healthy and safe!

Start by learning about health insurance for your family that helps you pay for medical care. 

Health insurance is really important, especially when you have a baby and start a family. The Affordable Care Act (also called ACA) says that insurance plans have to cover certain health services for children, including well-baby checkups, vaccinations, sick-baby checkups, hospital care and emergency services.

It’s also important to find out about dangers in and around your home, like air pollution, lead and harmful plastics. Learn how you can avoid or limit your family’s contact with these harms.
