Among them: the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), created 20 years ago with bipartisan support to help kids from low- and moderate-income families. With private insurance so expensive and Medicaid eligibility levels so minuscule, many families used CHIP as a bridge to affordable care.
In some states, where CHIP operates autonomously from Medicaid, the program could be shut down completely as soon as the federal funds run out; Arizona actually has a law requiring it. Maryland's program is structured differently, and the state would not be allowed under federal Medicaid maintenance of effort rules to kick kids out of the program without federal approval. In other words, our state could be one of many states facing a funding shortfall in this area if Congress does not extend federal funding. But unlike other Medicaid recipients, these children's care is 100 percent funded with no state contribution.
Rep. Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, is on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which oversees the CHIP program, and he has been pushing for a five-year extension, said Joe Hand, a spokesman.
The Children's Health Insurance Program expired at the end of September without congressional reauthorization. It helps states support children whose parents are not eligible for Medicaid, but can not afford insurance for their children. We are hopeful that Congress will act, and hopefully act quickly to restore the program's funding. In 2006 and 2007, Congress increased funding for the program, but was unable to find Executive Branch support for reauthorization. Others have said they will soon run out of money for it. It was originally co-sponsored by [Utah Senator Orrin] Hatch, a Republican, and the late [Massachusetts Senator] Ted Kennedy", the New Republic explains, adding, "M$3 ost Democrats and Republicans agree that the program is a successful one. It's a federal-state program that covers about 9 million children and pregnant women who do not otherwise qualify for Medicaid (typically because their incomes are a bit higher than Medicaid allows).
HO: Absolutely. I mean we have certainly seen the children's health insurance plan play an important role in children's access to health coverage.
