ARKids First

  • This week (Aug. 5) marks the 25th anniversary of the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), known in Arkansas as ARKids First. CHIP was created by Congress to cover millions of kids who might not otherwise have health insurance. More than 70,000 children have ARKids coverage, but thousands more who are eligible are not enrolled.
