ACTION ALERT: Save PeachCare for Kids!

Author: HMHB

For the past 20 years, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) has been popular on both sides of the aisle for its funding of health insurance for children from low- and middle-income families. But this year, Congress let funding for CHIP lapse as it concentrated on passing the tax reform bill.

CHIP covers almost 9 million children nationally. Through PeachCare, the program covers around 177,000 children in Georgia.

Federal funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (which includes PeachCare) expired Sept. 30, putting the future of program and Georgia’s children in jeopardy. The Georgia Department of Community Health said Monday that if the state maintains its current funding, Georgia will run out of money for PeachCare in March.

Please call the following representatives in Washington and ask them to RESTORE CHIP FUNDING FOR AMERICA’S CHILDREN!
