Throughout the years, public health insurance programs such as Kentucky Children’s Health Insurance Program (KCHIP) have increased access to coverage among numerous Kentucky children. This can all change as funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) expires on September 30, 2015.
Senator Rockefeller from West Virginia introduced senate bill 2461, “The CHIP Extension Act of 2014,” last month to extend CHIP funding for another four years. Senator Rockefeller’s bill is essential and critical to ensure 8 million children and an additional 2 million children expected by 2015 to continue to receive medical and dental benefits through CHIP. Together, these measures strive towards ensuring affordable and accessible coverage for working families. Please urge Congress to enact this bill this year.
