Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)

The ADA is working closely with lawmakers, regulators, and others to help mend America's tattered dental safety net. This includes sustaining and improving dental benefits in the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which provides health coverage to nearly eight million children from low-income families. 

The Association is calling on policy makers to:

  • Reauthorize the CHIP program to ensure children do not lose dental coverage.
  • Maintain the federal requirement for states to cover dental services in their respective CHIP programs.
