The Urban League of Philadelphia is Proud to Become CHIP Marketing Partner
Date:4/25/2008

Upcoming initiatives including Open House Clinics are designed to boost Pennsylvania's Children's Health Insurance Program enrollment and spread the word about CHIP

PHILADELPHIA, April 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Urban League of Philadelphia is proud to announce it has been invited to become a Pennsylvania's Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) community marketing partner. CHIP launched the search for partner organizations earlier this year in an effort to expand CHIP's message and increase CHIP enrollment as part of the Community Marketing Initiative.

The Urban League will support initiatives developed to inform members of our community about CHIP's comprehensive health care benefits, including routine doctor visits, immunizations, prescriptions, dental, eye care, hospital stays and more, available to all uninsured Pennsylvania children and teens who qualify for CHIP. To accomplish this goal, we plan to host Open House Clinics where we'll assist parents in enrolling their children. The initiatives will run through June and are set to begin on May 14, 2008 at 6:00pm at CCIS, 6350 Greene Street, Ground Floor in Philadelphia, PA 19144.

"We are excited to become a part of the CHIP Community Marketing Initiative and look forward to doing our part to see that every uninsured child and teen in Pennsylvania has access to the health care he or she needs," said Patricia A. Coulter, President & CEO, Urban League of Philadelphia.

The Community Marketing Initiative was designed to augment CHIP's existing partnerships with community organizations in order to boost CHIP awareness and enrollment. CHIP's marketing team invited organizations with established relationships in their communities to share plans for how they could reach uninsured children and teens and get them enrolled in CHIP. As a result, nine organizations from across the Commonwealth have been chosen to participate.

ABOUT CHIP

CHIP offers affordable, comprehensive health care coverage to all Pennsylvania uninsured children and teens up to age 19. It offers coverage for services including doctors' visits, hospital care, prescription drugs, vision, dental and home health care. Many families do not have to pay for CHIP. Premiums are affordable for all families because the premium payment is on a sliding scale based on the families' income. There is no cost for families who qualify for free CHIP. More information on the CHIP program can be found by calling 1-800-986-KIDS or by visiting http://www.chipcoverspakids.com.
