Call on your member of Congress to protect children's health this holiday season!

The clock has long run out on the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Since funding expired on September 30th,Congress has yet to move forward on extending the funding for this critical program that supports the health care and coverage for 9 million children, with over a quarter of a million CHIP recipients residing in Illinois.

The American Health Care Act will strip 24 million people of their health insurance, increase premiums by 20%, make devastating cuts to Medicaid, and completely gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions. This bill is not a solution - it puts the health of all communities at risk! Find talking points about the AHCA here.

Congressional leaders have signaled their intentions to dismantle the Affordable Care Act (the ACA, also known as Obamacare) and fundamentally weaken Medicaid as soon as January 2017. Health coverage for over 1 million Illinoisans is at stake and we need you to speak out for all the progress we have made.
