TAKE ACTION: Contact your members of Congress and urge them to take action immediately to reauthorize CHIP funding. Tell them that nearly nine million children – including over 200,000 Ohio children – and their families are depending on them to extend funding for the program without attaching reauthorization to other health care programs – like Medicaid or the ACA – or making structural changes to the program, such as rollbacks of funding or eligibility. Congress must make CHIP reauthorization a priority!
For more context about what’s at stake if the funding expires, read a guest blog on the Women’s Public Policy Network website from an Ohio mom and advocate who shared her family’s story with CHIP benefits. Read the full post here.
