Erratum

        In the Perspectives article by Keller and Chamberlain (“Children and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: Opportunities and Challenges in an Evolving System” Vol. 14 No 3, May/June 2014), the sentences “These interventions were expected to reduce the number of uninsured people in the United States from 52 million to about 26 million. An estimated 20 million of the remaining uninsured reside in the United States without documentation and would not be eligible to participate in the new exchanges.42” are based on an outdated reference. The sentence should have read:
        “These interventions were expected to reduce the number of uninsured people in the United States from 52 million to about 31 million. An estimated 9.3 million of the remaining uninsured reside in the United States without documentation and would not be eligible to participate in the new exchanges” and the corrected reference 42 should be “Congressional Budget Office. Updated estimates for the insurance coverage provisions of the Affordable Care Act. 2014. Available at: http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofiles/attachments/45231-ACA_Estimates.pdf. Accessed June 13, 2014.”

The evolving epidemiology of pediatric illness in the United States has resulted in a relatively small population of medically fragile children dispersed through the country and a large population of children with developmental and behavioral health issues who experience wide degrees of health disparities.
