Jay Rockefeller

CHIP at 20

The year 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). With Senator Jay Rockefeller’s leadership, Congress passed this landmark children’s health care bill, which expanded health insurance for 8 million lower-income American families, in 1997. Using materials from the Rockefeller Archives, the West Virginia and Regional History Center will tell the story of CHIP in an exhibition opening in April 2017. To bring the story home, we want to hear from West Virginians about their experiences with CHIP. To share your experience, fill out the form below. By completing the form, you agree to have your response archived and potentially used in the exhibition.
