Children’s Health Insurance Program

The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is currently authorized through 2019, but funding expired September 30, 2017. Legislative action is needed to fund CHIP. Without congressional action, states will need to start making tough decisions about their CHIP programs. The health care of 9 million children is at stake.

This page features resources to help you understand the benefits of CHIP and make the case for keeping this important program fully funded so that the millions of children and families that currently rely on the program can continue to have access to affordable, high-quality health coverage.
