Shining a Spotlight on Medicaid and CHIP Outreach

July 1, 2015

As the Connecting Kids to Coverage Campaign wraps up another great year, we want to recognize the amazing work being done across the country to help eligible children – and parents – sign up for health insurance through Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
