Scott joins governors calling on Congress to reauthorize CHIP

Tue, 12/12/2017 - 4:15pm -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine Governor Phil Scott is one of 12 governors who today sent a letter to Congress advocating for quick action to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance program (CHIP). "We believe covering children and pregnant women without disruption is one thing we can all agree on."

“For twenty years, this program has successfully provided vital health coverage and care to about nine million children. Without it, access to essential health services like well child exams, asthma medicine, and hospitalizations will be at risk.  As health insurance premiums climb at unsustainable rates, this program gives hard-working families access to otherwise unaffordable coverage,” writes the group of governors.
