Calder Lynch, Deputy Administrator & Director, Center for Medicaid & CHIP Services within the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Did you know Millions of children in the United States don’t have health coverage. As a result, it may be difficult or impossible for them to access the care they need if they get sick or injured. But, the majority of the nation’s uninsured children up to age 19 are eligible for free or low-cost health coverage through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) offered in their state. With Medicaid and CHIP, parents get the peace of mind that comes with knowing their children can get preventive health care to stay healthy. Parents can rest easier knowing medical bills won’t jeopardize the family’s financial security. They can apply for the comprehensive benefits these programs provide at any time of the year. This includes doctor’s appointments, hospital visits, prescriptions, immunizations, dental visits, mental health services and more. Parents may also be eligible for Medicaid, even if they have applied in the past.
