Republishing Photos & Illustrations
Images shot by KFF Health News staff photographers or reporters may be available for republication for noncommercial purposes for use only with the original story published with the photo(s). KFF Health News often contracts with freelance photographers who usually, but not always, allow their work to be published by our media partners with the original story.
Generally, if a photo caption credits KFF Health News as the image source, it is likely you can republish that image, but you must contact us.

When using our images, you will be advised to:
- Maintain correct caption information.
- Credit the photographer and KFF Health News in the caption. For example: (Lynne Shallcross/KFF Health News)
