Next Year’s Battle: CHIP Funding

At this time next year, a major battle will be brewing in Congress over the renewal of funding for the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.

CHIP offers health coverage for low-income children and pregnant women.  It  is similar to the Medicaid program and is financed by both the federal government and the states. The CHIP program in 2013 enrolled 8.4 million individuals. However, funding for the program expires on September 30, 2015 and the funding renewal will require congressional action.

The CHIP program enjoys bipartisan support but the new 114th Congress next year will likely continue long-running battles over health care programs and spending requirements. On Tuesday, the leaders of the Senate Finance and House Energy and Commerce committees wrote to the governors of all 50 states asking questions about the success of the program and suggestions on funding and CHIP coverage options. On Thursday, House Democrats offered an early proposal to renew funding for the CHIP program.

    With 28 days left for the entire year for Representatives to be in Washington, DC
    and ignoring the expiration of the CHIP program, does anyone really think the
    Republicans, Tea Party and Conservatives have any intention of addressing an
    extension?

    Once I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the identical comment. Is there any approach you possibly can take away me from that service? Thanks!
