Statement of the National Childrens Health Community Urging Quick Bipartisan Action on a Strong, Five-Year Extension of Funding for the Childrens Health Insurance Program

As advocates for children and pregnant women, we call on Congress to take immediate action to enact a five-year extension of CHIP funding. Since its inception in 1997, CHIP, together with Medicaid, has helped to reduce the numbers of uninsured children by a remarkable 68 percent. With CHIP funding set to expire on September 30, 2017, now is the time for Congress to stabilize the CHIP funding stream and protect the gains in childrens health coverage that have resulted in more than 95 percent of all children in America being enrolled in some form of insurance coverage.

Extension of Childrens Health Insurance Program

(CHIP)

The undersigned member organizations of the Save Medicaid in the Schools Coalition urge you to support a full, clean extension of funding for the Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for five years at current funding levels. CHIP has benefitted from strong bipartisan support since its creation in 1997. By providing medical assistance to children who are not eligible for Medicaid, CHIP provides essential funding to support states to cover uninsured children. Any delay or a failure to immediately extend funding for CHIP will jeopardize coverage for children who are eligible for school-based health-related services leading to immediate and lasting harmful effects for America�s most vulnerable citizens. A lapse in coverage for children places more barriers on their ability to come to school ready to learn. During a time of great uncertainty in the healthcare system, children need the consistent, reliable health coverage CHIP provides today.

UCCEDD's Healthcare Advocacy Strategies Engage New Advocates and Allies (OH UCEDD)

Like many UCEDDs across the Network, the University of Cincinnati Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCCEDD) was actively involved in educating individuals with disabilities, family members, professionals, and policy-makers about the healthcare changes proposed during this spring and summer. It was a fast-paced time of advocacy, an opportunity for seasoned advocates to teach others about legislative action, and a chance for new advocates to find their passion. The importance of raising voices and awareness has been and continues to be critical in this fight. Throughout the ongoing process, UCCEDD identified a need for healthcare policy education and activation and we'd like to share what that has looked like for us.

Post-Harvey Assistance: Preparations needed for AT/DME to Houston

A need for Assistive Technology (AT) - especially the subset of AT referred to as "Durable Medical Equipment (DME)" exists in areas hard-hit by Hurricane Harvey. As homes and neighborhoods flooded, many people were rescued without their AT/DME, or their equipment was lost or damaged in the flood. In addition, people may have developed new needs for AT/DME as a result of injuries sustained in the emergency. Currently, efforts are underway to assess people in shelters to identify their needs for AT/DME, identify a warehouse to store donated equipment, and identify safe transportation routes for delivering donated equipment.
