A top Republican state senator is warning that Florida will not able to keep a major children's health-insurance program running if Congress doesn't authorize additional money in the near future.
This appears to be the case even though Congress had been expected to maintain the program's operations until at least the end of March, according to federal health officials.

"If the funding is not provided by the federal government, families who receive CHIP will begin to get rift letters and discouraging enrollments", Heflin explained. But that is a drastic step, since the federal government pays on average almost 90 percent of CHIP costs. The House plan includes a controversial provision - opposed by Democrats - that takes millions of dollars from the Affordable Care Act's Prevention and Public Health Fund and increases Medicare premiums for some higher-earning beneficiaries. (It's a five-year funding bill.) But no matter.

Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) tweeted Wednesday.

Congressional leaders are working on a deal to extend the program for five years, possibly as part of a broader agreement to fund the government before a January 19 deadline. As it happens, that estimate only included seven years of funding, for reasons I couldn't quite figure out.
