MPCA Celebrates 5th Anniversary of CHIPRA
Friday, February 07, 2014
This week marks the 5th anniversary of President Obama signing the
Children's Health Insurance Program Authorization Act (CHIPRA) into law.
CHIPRA paved the way for significant gains in access to health
insurance coverage and health care for children across the country and
here in Michigan.Today, 4 million more children are insured through
Medicaid or CHIP than when the law was enacted. In Michigan, the number
of uninsured children dropped by nearly 20,000 from 2009 to 2011. Click here
