Medicaid Flyers

To help support outreach and enrollment efforts, the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services (CMCS) is offering a set of Medicaid Flyers that are aimed at helping AIAN consumers understand the basics:

  • Who is eligible for Medicaid and CHIP?
  • What benefits do the programs provide?
  • How can individuals enroll?

The materials are for use in AIAN communities where it is important to discuss specific protections for applicants and beneficiaries.  You can now customize print materials for use in your community.  

Four Samples of Customizable Flyers:

Boy on bike    Family    Man    Mom Kissing Girl

                                                                     

Posters

Five printed CHIP posters were created with sports themes to be distributed in Tribal communities, schools and health centers to encourage enrollment in Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program and the Marketplace.
