On Super Sunday, Feb. 6, 2011, the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) marked its two-year anniversary, having been signed into law on the same day in 2009 by President Obama.
To mark the moment, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sibelius noted that since CHIPRA's signing, more than 42 million children had been entered into CHIPRA state plans or into the Medicaid system.
“The increase in the number of children served by these two vital programs is especially significant in the face of the recent economic downturn states are experiencing,” said Secretary Sebelius. “Even in times of hardship states have demonstrated their commitment to the health of children by continuing efforts to identify and enroll them in coverage.”
