Get Covered. Get in the Game. Campaign


The goal of the Get Covered. Get in the Game. campaign is to help uninsured children get health insurance so they can participate in sports programs. Eligible children and teens can get no-cost or low-cost health coverage through Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

The campaign materials include a guide that provides strategies and outreach materials that can help schools and communities link youth athletes—and all eligible children and teens—to Medicaid and CHIP. These ideas should help, whether the goal is to provide basic information and referrals or to conduct a full-fledged outreach and enrollment campaign.

The campaign Web site also includes national materials as well as materials from the seven pilot states: Colorado, Florida, Maryland, New York, Ohio, Oregon, and Wisconsin. These materials can be customized to meet any organization's needs.
