Catholic Charities USA President Joins President Obama at Signing of Children's Health Insurance Legislation
Date:2/4/2009

The State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) provides critical health care access to children whose families do not qualify for Medicaid, but do not make enough money to secure private health coverage.

The new law, which passed with bipartisan support in Congress, will provide more funding for SCHIP, reduce enrollment barriers, cover legal immigrant children and pregnant women, improve access to dental care, and expand eligibility to four million more children living without health insurance in this country.

"Improving access to health care for low-income children has been a major priority in Catholic Charities USA's efforts to reduce poverty in America," said Father Snyder. "We applaud Congress and President Obama for acting so swiftly on this vital law. Without SCHIP, vulnerable children of low-income families would not receive the care they need to be strong and healthy citizens and productive individuals in our society."

Catholic Charities USA's members --- more than 1,600 local agencies and institutions nationwide --- provide help and create hope for nearly 8 million people a year regardless of religious, social, or economic backgrounds. For more than 280 years, local Catholic Charities agencies have been providing a myriad of vital services in their communities, ranging from day care and counseling to food and housing.
