Pennsylvania Governor Rendell Urges General Assembly to Support Children's Health Insurance Program
Date:6/24/2009

leave $16.7 million in federal matching money on the table -- money that could be used to give children access to health care," said the Governor. "Without adequate state support, we may be faced with very harsh decisions that could mean creating a wait list for the program, scaling back CHIP's benefit package, or both.

"For a child, losing health care -- even for a year -- can carry serious consequences. Also, when children are forced to turn elsewhere for health care, such as the school nurse's office or a local hospital emergency room, local taxpayers and hospitals must absorb those extra costs."

CHIP offers quality health-care coverage for all of Pennsylvania's uninsured kids and teens (up to age 19) who are not eligible for Medical Assistance. Coverage includes doctor visits, dental care, eye care, prescriptions, immunizations, mental health and much more. According to June enrollment figures, there are 193,350 children currently covered by CHIP.

More information on the CHIP program can be found at www.chipcoverspakids.com or by calling 1-800-986-KIDS.

The Rendell administration is committed to creating a first-rate public education system, protecting our most vulnerable citizens and continuing economic investment to support our communities and businesses.
