Tell Congress to Extend the Children's Health Insurance Program!
Health coverage for millions of children enrolled in the Children's Health Insurance Program is at-risk. The program expired last month and its money is about to run out. Congress must act quickly to renew this critical program that provides immunizations, check-ups, and other care for children with and without disabilities whose families do not qualify for Medicaid. 

 

The Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) expired on September 30. Several states will run out of CHIP funding by the end of the year -- putting millions of children at risk of losing their health care coverage.

Nearly one in every two children with special health care needs relies on CHIP and Medicaid to access care and other health supports. Children enrolled in CHIP could lose their coverage if Congress doesn't act soon.

Legislation to address this problem is currently being considered in Congress. Your voice is needed to continue this important program.

Children Need Health Insurance - Extend CHIP

Please pass legislation to extend the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

CHIP provides immunizations, check-ups, and other care for children with and without disabilities whose low-income, working families do not qualify for Medicaid. States utilize the federal match to develop a program that meets the unique needs of their residents. The program has been found to be a cost-effective means of ensuring that children have access to a full range of necessary care.

Nearly one in every two children with special health care needs relies on CHIP and Medicaid to access care and other health supports. Children who receive their health care through CHIP are in jeopardy of losing their coverage if Congress doesn't act quickly to reauthorize CHIP.
