Restore CHIP! Children’s Healthcare Insurance Program
This petition had 132,148 supporters
Nine million children across the U.S. are at risk of losing access to health care due to Congress’s failure to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The program has attracted broad bipartisan support and is credited with providing almost universal healthcare for children in the U.S.
Since 1997, CHIP has provided health care access for working families with children who earn too much to qualify for Medicaid. Congress let funding authorization for CHIP expire on September 30 — now millions of children could lose their healthcare if they don’t act. Tell Congress the time to reauthorize CHIP is now.
If Congress fails to act, all fifty states will be out of CHIP money by July 2018. American families deserve better than this completely avoidable outcome.
Children across the country are depending on people like you to stand up and speak out on their behalf.
Tell Congress to take action to reauthorize and restore needed funding for CHIP. Please add your name to tell our representatives to act and save health care access for nine million kids and their hard-working families.
