Health Care for Children

Posted: March 3, 2009 in Uncategorized


On January 29th, the U.S. Senate approved the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009, better known as the State Children’s Health Insurance Program or SCHIP.  It was signed on February 4, 2009 by President Obama and became law on this date.  This legislation will continue coverage for six to seven million children and increase that coverage to four million more. It is available for view on President Obama’s website, which is listed in my Blogrolls.

This is great news for those who do not have health insurance through their employer for their children, or who can’t afford health insurance through their employers for their children.  For more information, review President Obama’s website or check out www.healthyfamilies.ca.gov.
