American Children Have A Higher Chance Of Dying Before Adulthood

CHIP funding will run dry in several states by the end of January

CHIP funding will run dry in several states by the end of January

Why is this? One researcher claims that it probably has a lot to do with the United States' chaotic health care system, which frankly, isn't so surprising considering Congress isn't funding kids' health insurance.

The program ensures low-priced medical coverage for children whose parents earn too much income to qualify for Medicaid.

The short-term federal budget runs through Friday, Jan. 19, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services published preliminary information indicating MA would receive $119.7 million in CHIP funding as part of the funding extension.

The families enrolled in CHIP are working families, said Joshua Austin, program manager for strategic initiatives for the West Virginia University Health Sciences Center.

"As a previous supporter of the CHIP program, Sen".

"Like the CHIP Program, Community Health Centers have enjoyed long bipartisan support for the high-quality care that they provide our families".

In December, Congress passed short-term funding for the program - injecting it with $3 billion through March 2018.

"Americans are exhausted of waiting on their government to do the right thing - lives are depending on it. Let's end this waiting game and #FundCHIPNow", U.S. Sen.

That may have gotten easier with a January 5 estimate showing that a Senate bill to extend CHIP would increase deficits by $800 million over 10 years, far lower than the previous projection of more than $8 billion.

Funding CHIP is cheaper than moving the covered children to other coverage options, including Medicaid and through subsidized plans in the Affordable Care Act marketplace, according to the CBO. The bill was not taken up by the U.S. Senate. His committee has jurisdiction over the health program's budget.

"This is going to be a serious blow to individual families, but also to health providers who are providing services for their children and just for the general welfare of the communities", he said.

Eleven states are expected to run through their remaining federal funds before the end of February: Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Washington State and Washington, DC. "We expect to see states start to send out notices out to families that CHIP may expire or possibly order enrollment freezes by February 1st if Congress doesn't act".

Rep. Steve Womack believes it's important to make sure CHIP is on "proper fiscal footing for an extended period of time". Wyden has always supported extending CHIP for as long as possible, including a permanent extension that would save taxpayers billions of dollars while giving kids long-term health care security.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, said CHIP funding is "highly likely to happen on or about the 19th [of January] when the current continuing resolution expires", according to The Dallas Morning News.

"The short term patch that lawmakers included in an end-of-year funding deal only provides momentary relief", the organization wrote.
