CHIP & MIECHV funding expired on September 30th . This missed deadline has real implications for real children and families. With every day that passes after the deadline, millions of children, pregnant women and families are left with more uncertainty about whether or not they will be able to access the health care they rely on or reap the benefits of home visits.
Take action by reaching out to Congress and demand that they #ExtendCHIP and MIECHV as soon as possible. Families who rely on CHIP already face uncertainty and challenges, whether managing a complicated health condition for their child or determining how to afford day-to-day living expenses. And home visiting improves physical and mental health, and increases school readiness and economic stability.
CHIP and MIECHV - good for families, good for states and good for taxpayers.
As your constituent, I am reaching out today to urge you to support the Keep Kids’ Insurance Dependable and Secure (KIDS) Act of 2017 that would extend current”
level funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for five years. Please don't fail our children!
As your constituent, I am writing to tell you to act now to renew, protect and expand the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting program. Home visiting improves physical and mental health, and increases school readiness and economic stability. It’s good for families, good for states and good for taxpayers. #More4MIECHV What are we waiting for?”
