Children's Hospitals Urge Senate Finance Committee to Act Quickly on CHIP

On Sept. 7, the Children’s Hospital Association submitted a statement for the record to the Senate Finance Committee urging quick congressional action on a strong, five-year extension of funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). CHA also joined more than 120 national groups in calling for a five-year extension. Congress must act to extend funding for CHIP before Sept. 30, 2017 or states may be faced with having to limit or end their CHIP programs.
