Statement of the Children’s Community Urging Congress to Act Quickly on a Strong, Five-Year Extension of Funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program

As advocates for children and pregnant women, today we call on Congress to take immediate action to stabilize CHIP in its current form and enact a five-year extension of CHIP funding. Congress should protect the gains in children’s health coverage that have resulted in more than 95 percent of all children in America being enrolled in some form of insurance coverage. Together, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) are an integral part of this success and we urge Congress to ensure that coverage for children and pregnant women provided through Medicaid and CHIP is protected and not disrupted in any upcoming legislation.

Children's Group Letter to The Honorable Bill Cassidy

As child health advocates and pediatric providers working together toward a common goal of improving access to health coverage for our nation’s children and pregnant women, we thank you for drawing attention to children’s unique health needs and for arguing in favor of a “Jimmy Kimmel test” before acting on health reform legislation. This test is one that should ensure that we protect children’s coverage.
