Children's Hospitals in Washington to Lobby Congress to Reauthorize SCHIP Now
Date:9/18/2007

WASHINGTON, Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- More than 150 children's hospital CEOs, medical directors, trustees and other hospital leadership representing nearly 50 children's hospitals are headed to Capitol Hill on Wednesday, September 19 to call for reauthorization of the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). At noon at the Retired Officers Association Building, they will receive an update from Senators Max Baucus (D-MT) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) on the state of SCHIP negotiations between the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.

"SCHIP expires at the end of September and if that happens children will lose coverage," said Lawrence A. McAndrews, president and CEO of the National Association of Children's Hospitals (N.A.C.H.) "We are encouraged by the ongoing negotiations between the House and Senate that may yield a bipartisan SCHIP reauthorization bill that will help states enroll many of the 9 million uninsured but eligible children. If we stay focused on the needs of children, SCHIP will get done."

Children's hospitals from the following states will meet with their Congressional delegations tomorrow:

Alabama

Arkansas

Arizona

California

Colorado

Connecticut

District of Columbia

Florida

Iowa

Illinois

Indiana

Michigan

Minnesota

Missouri

North Carolina
