Policy Paper: Medicaid and CHIP

1,000 Days Policy Brief: Medicaid & CHIP

We believe that every child in America deserves a healthy first 1,000 days. Because Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) are a critical source of health insurance for millions of children and families in the U.S., 1,000 Days supports full federal funding for these programs and a robust benefit package that ensures women and children get the care they need to be healthy. To safeguard healthcare access and affordability, we oppose any changes to Medicaid and CHIP—such as caps, block grants, eligibility requirements, or other cuts—that limit coverage and access to critical health services.
