2024 Policy Priorities for the 118th Congress

Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) advances child health through innovation in the quality, cost, and delivery of care in children’s hospitals and health systems.

Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) is eager to work with members of the 118th Congress to ensure pediatric patients receive the care they need. Through our 2024 priorities, CHA and children’s hospitals ask policymakers to:

  • Protect and strengthen Medicaid policy.
  • Bolster support for the pediatric workforce.
  • Address the children’s mental health crisis.

Children are not little adults. As Congress develops health care policy, we encourage you to prioritize and consider the unique needs of children and the providers that serve them, like children’s hospitals. Read our policy priorities document to learn more about how to accomplish our shared goals of providing children with the best health care.
