Tell Congress to renew CHIP insurance for children

Published by

Since 1997, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) has provided low-cost health insurance for  American children whose families have financial need. More than nine million children depend on it this year. CHIP also provides coverage for pregnant women.

CHIP was due to be re-authorized by September 30.  But Congress just let it expire. That means that funding will run out soon, putting the health of millions of children at risk. Administrative and fiscal problems will continue to mount for the states that depend on federal funding for their CHIP programs.

Tell Congress to do its job. Congress must renew CHIP and restore its funding today.
