The Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)was designed to cover uninsured children in families with incomes that are modest but too high to qualify for Medicaid. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat #CHIP #ProtectOurCare
The legislation to create CHIP was sponsored by Senator Ted Kennedy in a partnership with Senator Orrin Hatch, with support coming from First Lady Hillary Clinton during the Clinton administration. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat #ForAll #CHIP
In 1997, 10 million children were without health insurance, many of whom were in working families with incomes just above states’ Medicaid eligibility levels. Since the enactment of CHIP, the %of children lacking health insurance has been halved. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat
