Nearly nine million children across the country receive health care services through the Children’s Health Insurance Program, enacted with bipartisan congressional support in 1997 to provide health care coverage for children from eligible families with low and moderate incomes. In our four states — Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada and Oregon — more than 300,000 children rely on the program, known as CHIP. But any day now, if Congress doesn’t act, these kids could lose the health care they depend on.
"Please Save Kids’ Health Care" is from the December 07, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Charlie Baker, Kate Brown, Steve Bullock and Brian Sandoval and narrated by Barbara Benjamin-Creel.
