Help kids with autism and other disabilities get health care coverage

Wow — it’s busy in Washington these days. The House and Senate are preparing legislation to extend the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) and hope to have a final bill to present to President Obama this month.

SCHIP is a program that provides health insurance to children living in families that make less than $45,000 for a family of four. Easter Seals is committed to helping all families find health insurance, and it seems to us that shoring up the SCHIP program is an outstanding place to start.

If you want to tell your Senator and Representative to vote for the SCHIP bill, go to the Easter Seals Legislative Action Center to learn more about SCHIP and add your voice so that millions more children — including those with autism and other disabilities — can get the health care coverage they need.
