The Connecting Kids to Coverage National Campaign works with outreach grantees and a variety of partners—including government agencies, community organizations, health care providers, schools and others—throughout the nation, with a focus on reaching children and teens who are eligible for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), but are not enrolled.

The Campaign has produced various resources to help our outreach partners connect kids to coverage and spread the word about Medicaid and CHIP resources. From customizable materials  (PDF, 5.1 MB)  like select posters and palmcards to social media messages and images to strategies and ideas, InsureKidsNow.gov provides a wide range of free outreach materials to help support your outreach initiatives—explore the resources!
