Introducing the new iOS app for Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology
The Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) helps provide essential access to quality, timely, and affordable medical care for children with cerebral palsy and other childhood developmental disorders.
CHIP funding expired on September 30, 2017, putting critical care at risk for the nearly 9 million enrolled children. Without immediate action from Congress, states will be forced to make drastic cuts to the program, including slashing enrollment, cutting benefits, and imposing high costs for families.
CHIP covers children in working families who are not eligible for Medicaid and who lack access to affordable private coverage. Failure to reauthorize the program puts their care at risk.
Please do your part with a plea to your state representatives and senators. The AACPDM Advocacy Committee developed a sample letter that you can send via email to your state senators and representatives.
