The Straightforward Story on Children's Health Insurance

During 1997 and 1998, the Alliance for Health Reform published materials and held briefings on the issue of children's health care coverage. The effort spanned the period of debate, adoption and early implementation of the federally mandated State Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which was adopted in August 1997.

Based in Washington, the Alliance for Health Reform is a nonpartisan, nonprofit educational organization focusing on health coverage for all Americans.
