Arizona Organizations, Show Your Support for Reinstating KidsCare

| January 24, 2016

Children’s Action Alliance newsletter:

As you know, the Cover Kids Coalition is supporting efforts to unfreeze the KidsCare program in Arizona, currently the only state in the country without a Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). A recent study by Georgetown University and Children’s Action Alliance found more than 160,000 Arizona children do not have health coverage, the second highest rate of uninsured kids in the nation.

Congressional funding provides 100% of the costs of reinstating KidsCare for the next two years, an opportunity that is too important to pass up. There is bipartisan support in the legislature for lifting the temporary freeze on KidsCare:  HB 2309 is sponsored by Representatives Regina Cobb, Heather Carter, Jay Lawrence, Kate Brophy McGee and Eric Meyer, as well as Senator Carlyle Begay.

We need your organization’s support to make this a reality, and provide children from working poor families the chance to get healthy and stay healthy. Join our growing coalition of Arizona organizations who are speaking up to Unfreeze #KidsCare by filling in this form and clicking “submit.”
