The Connecting Kids to Coverage National Campaign was created to engage with families who have children or teenagers who are eligible for health coverage under Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
As a founding partner of the initiative, the American Academy of Pediatrics works to raise awareness of health insurance and benefits available under these programs, create opportunities for families to enroll their children and teens in the programs, encourage parents to renew their health coverage, and provide the resources and tools that states, communities, and health care providers need to conduct effective outreach activities.
As part of the Connecting Kids to Coverage National Campaign, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services created several public service announcements in Spanish and English and flyers for pediatric offices on the importance of Medicaid and CHIP.
