Celebrating 5 Years of CHIPRA! Secretary Sebelius Highlights Achievements

February 4, 2014

Today marks an important milestone in children's health. There are 4 million more children insured in Medicaid and CHIP since President Obama signed the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (CHIPRA) into law 5 years ago! This anniversary provides an opportunity to take stock in what we have accomplished for children such as increased health insurance coverage, improved access to health care, and reduced financial burdens and stress for parents.

Together we can continue to make progress by helping to enroll more eligible children in Medicaid and CHIP – and keep them covered for as long as they qualify.
