Congress failed to reauthorize funding by September 30 for four major programs—Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), the Health Center Fund, National Health Service Corps (NHSC) and Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education Program (THCGME).These are essential programs to our CHCs and the patients they care for. Unless Congress acts soon, providers in Washington State will be forced to curtail enrollment and health services for children.
Fill out the
information below to tell your story to Members of Congress about why health care is a big deal to you.
Urge them to protect the tremendous gains we’ve achieved with health care reform
and reauthorize these other critical health care programs. Our friends, families and communities here in
Washington and across the country are counting on this!
