The Pennsylvania Catholic Conference and the Pennsylvania Catholic Health Association have been proponents of the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, since its inception.
Across the nation, CHIP currently covers 9 million children with health insurance. More than 176,000 Pennsylvania children are covered by CHIP’s comprehensive, effective and affordable coverage.
Although CHIP remains a popular and valuable health insurance tool, it must be reauthorized by the federal government in order to continue offering coverage.
To date, Congress has failed to take action to reauthorize CHIP – putting hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvania children at risk.
Contact Pennsylvania’s federal lawmakers to urge them reauthorize this vital program for children in need of coverage and care.
