Renew CHIP Funding without gutting ACA: A matter of justice, equity, and compassion
The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) brings health insurance to children whose working families make too much to qualify for medicaid but too little to cover their kids through employee plans. Your Congresspeople have passed HR 3922 to renew CHIP funding. HOWEVER, the bill calls for funding CHIP by cutting 75% of funding for the ACA's Prevention and Public Health Fun and by reducing access to health insurance for many others. It is unacceptable to use CHIP funding as a bargaining tool to undermine popular aspects of the ACA. Right now, the bill has been recalled for reconsideration.
Click HERE to urge your congresspeople to renew funding of CHIP without drawing funds from other vital sources of health insurance for our most vulnerable families.
Congress needs to know we are watching!
