Wolf announces revisions to CHIP program
DERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. – Governor Tom Wolf announced changes to the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Starting December first, there will no longer be dollar limits on essential health services like pediatric, vision, and orthodontic services. The changes were made to meet Affordable Care Act requirements.
Governor Wolf made his announcement from the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. He says he’s committed to fighting for all families and the 148,00 children in the CHIP program.
“What we’re trying to do is make sure every child in Pennsylvania, those 148,000 especially, have access to the kind of health care they can get in a place like this,” Wolf said.
