Rally for Children’s Health

Don’t let Virginia’s kids lose FAMIS coverage!!
We need you to get fired up about SCHIP Reauthorization!

SCHIP (FAMIS in Virginia) must be reauthorized by Congress in less than 60 days or 82,000 kids could lose their FAMIS coverage!

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has selected 10 states in which to sponsor major press events to highlight the benefits of SCHIP. Virginia is one of the 10!! The Virginia Health Care Foundation, in partnership with DMAS, is coordinating this event and WE WANT YOU THERE!!!
