Medicaid Task Force Coalition Thank You Letter

On Tuesday, May 10, CHA and seven allied child health organizations sent a letter to House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI). The letter thanks Chairman Upton for the invitation to meet with the majority’s Medicaid Task Force in April and reinforced the coalition’s principles for children’s coverage, which were also shared at the meeting. The letter also weighed in on recent proposals to reduce the federal CHIP matching rate, urging Congress instead to build on its record of improving children’s coverage by removing any uncertainty about future funding for Medicaid and CHIP and providing long-term stability to promote future innovations in the programs.
