Medicaid and CHIP: Help Keep Children and Families Covered

Ways Your Organization Can Help 

  • Partner with your State Medicaid agency to spread the word about renewals. You can find contact information on your State Medicaid agencies here.
  • Use CMS’s Communications Toolkit, available in multiple languages, including English and Spanish.
  • Promote social media content and graphics pulled from CMS’s toolkit on your social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.
  • Share HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra’s video (in English and Spanish) on Medicaid renewals across your social media channels.
