Act Now to Save CHIP

25,000 West Virginia Children Rely on CHIP

CHIP has made the difference for West Virginia families and children who can’t afford health insurance.  Moms and Dads rely on CHIP when their children are sick and need to see a doctor.  CHIP gives families peace of mind and saves them millions of dollars in medical bills.

CHIP Meets Children’s Medical Needs

CHIP is specifically tailored to the needs of children. The benefits are designed with children in mind and families are protected from high out-of-pocket costs. Doctors who know how to treat children are part of CHIP.

 Congress Must Continue CHIP

West Virginia children will lose coverage if Washington does not continue CHIP.  Our elected Members of Congress must make children’s health a priority. 

Please ACT NOW.  Contact our congressional delegation and ask them to continue funding CHIP and vote YES on The CHIP Extension Act 2014, sponsored by our own Senator Rockefeller.  Without action in Washington, a significant number of  West Virginia children will  lose  health  coverage in 2015.
