Leaders from Every State Say Act Now to Protect CHIP

CHIP Sign-On Letter

A total of 408 leading national, state, and local advocates (including the Maine Children’s Alliance!) sent a letter to the President and congressional leaders to urge them to protect health coverage for children provided through the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Specifically, the letter expresses concern that 12.7 million children are at risk of losing their CHIP coverage in 2015 if Congress fails to take action to extend funding for CHIP. If Congress fails to act, important coverage gains for children won since CHIP’s inception, would be lost, reversing an important positive trend for the health of America’s children.
