Kiggans Introduces Care for Military Kids Act

Today, Congresswoman Kiggans (VA-02) announced the introduction of her legislation, the Care for Military Kids Act. This bipartisan bill, which Congresswoman Kiggans introduced with Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (OH-09), aims to ensure servicemembers can maintain critical healthcare coverage and medical services for their children no matter where their service takes them.

Specifically, the Care for Military Kids Act would amend the Social Security Act to ensure that any dependent of an active duty servicemember currently receiving long-term care services through a state administered Medicaid plan will remain eligible for those services should their family be stationed in another state. The legislation is endorsed by the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD), the National Disability Rights Network (NDRN), and The Arc of the United States.
