Take Action – Tell U.S. Senate to fund Children’s Health Insurance Program

NE_Appleseed_Icons_ChildrensHealth-128Today is an important day to take action by asking our U.S. Senators to make children’s health care a priority by extending funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

The Senate is back from recess today and their first action must be to extend funding for CHIP, a program that provides health coverage for over 55,000 Nebraska children.

The House of Representatives already has passed a bill to reauthorize CHIP and make sure nearly 5.7 million American children have health coverage. Tell our Senators it’s their turn to act now!

Hello Senator,

I’m contacting you to urge you to act quickly to extend funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Ensuring all Nebraska children have the opportunity to grow up healthy is critical to the future of our communities and our state. Please act quickly to make sure Nebraska kids can continue get coverage from CHIP without interruption so they will continue to have access to affordable, high quality health care.


Sincerely, [your name]

You can call their office, leave a voicemail if it’s after hours, or send an email. Your voice is very important. Please take action today to ensure more than 55,000 Nebraska children can maintain their health coverage through CHIP.

Thank you for your help.
