Hold the Line to Ensure Children Do Not Move Backward

In recent years, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) have helped reduce the number of uninsured children in America to a record low and today, more than 95 percent of all children in America have health coverage – a record high.  Despite historic gains in health coverage for children, Medicaid, CHIP and the ACA continue to face serious attacks.  The structure and foundational protections of the ACA, Medicaid and a spectrum of other federal programs continue to be at serious risk in the legislative and regulatory arenas, and through the waiver process.  CDF continues to fight to protect and strengthen these critical sources of health coverage for children to ensure children continue to move forward, not backward.
