In response to the U.S. Senate’s rejection of the Health Care Freedom Act early this morning, as well as the defeat of the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) and Obamacare Repeal Reconciliation Act (ORRA) earlier this week, Children’s Hospital Colorado President and CEO Jena Hausmann issued the following statement:
Children’s Colorado thanks the lawmakers from the Colorado delegation who spoke up to advance kids’ health issues during this debate. There is no question that Medicaid can be improved, for taxpayers and for the 30 million children that it serves. Congress now has other urgent priorities, too, like ensuring sustainable funding for the nearly nine million children who rely on the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Funding for CHIP expires at the end of September.
As an advocate for kids, Children’s Colorado is eager to work with all of our state’s elected officials to craft solutions that will enable our children to grow up healthy and strong. Children are the future of our state, and improving their health should be a bipartisan priority.
