Insurance For 3000 Kids In Wyoming In Congress's Hands

What Parents Should Know About CHIP's Status Now

Brian Rosman, research director for the Hub nonprofit Health Care For All, said if the money runs out, "Some kids would move onto MassHealth coverage, but the state would get much less money, so the state would have to use Medicaid funds". This is not a hypothetical - about two million CHIP kids have serious chronic conditions. Congress has yet to reach an agreement to reauthorize funding for the program, and California is on the brink of running out of cash to pay for it.

Here's news that would be unbelievable if it didn't involve Congress: As states like OR are running out of money to fund the Children's Health Insurance Program, Congress still has failed to renew the program. They have not listened to us. The House of Representatives passed long-term CHIP funding that is awaiting action in the Senate. That means states like OR which have had to put in their own money to keep the program running would be made whole.

"This is not a funding issue right now", he said.

It's a new low point that lawmakers have allowed the program to become bogged down by partisan bickering.

CHIP provides free or low-priced health insurance options for children in families who earn too much money to qualify for Medicaid but do not have access to health coverage through other means.

This program contributes toward the health coverage of more than 125,000 Minnesota children, plus about 1,700 pregnant women and 200 infants.

It doesn't make sense why he wouldn't be able to, but crossing the streams like this when it comes to sports can get weird. New ownership could result in relocation and the Panthers' obligation to stay in Charlotte expires in the summer of 2019.

To avoid immediate disruption, MassHealth is claiming certain spending under Medicaid to reserve for CHIP funding only, to extend it through the end of the state fiscal year. But this time, funding expired on September 30.

It's hard to tell exactly how numerous Children's Clinic's patients receive CHIP because in California, those children's benefits are administered through Medi-Cal, so it's not exactly clear how they are receiving coverage when they visit a doctor, Nicholas said. Other states have begun preparing to wind down their programs should all funding dry up. "But the need for Congress to act quickly has not diminished, and I hope Congress will reauthorize the program soon in order to provide the longer-term certainty that working families in Texas need".

A family of four with an income of up to $51,168 can receive free CHIP insurance for their children, while a family of four with an income of up to $77,244 qualifies for low-priced CHIP insurance, according to the state Department of Human Services.

What's more, Congress still needs to address the underlying structural problems within CHIP.

But she is anxious about the prospect of families losing health coverage for their children, recalling instances where families have delayed care for urgent health needs because they lacked coverage.
