The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is actively engaged in advancing the enrollment of children into Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. According to InsureKidsNow.gov:

InsureKidsNow.gov is a website operated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. It provides information about Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for:

  • Families seeking health insurance coverage for children and teens and families needing help locating a dentist
    Organizations interested in getting involved in the Connecting Kids to Coverage National Campaign, a national outreach and enrollment initiative initially funded under the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and now through the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).

In addition, “The Connecting Kids to Coverage National Campaign, a national outreach and enrollment initiative funded under the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA), reaches out to families with children and teens eligible for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) to:

  • Raise awareness about health coverage available under these programs;
  • Create opportunities for families to get their eligible children and teens signed up for coverage;
  • Motivate parents to enroll their children and teens and renew their coverage; and
  • Provide outreach guides and toolkits that can be used to help states, community organizations, schools, health care providers and others organize and conduct successful outreach activities.”
