The Children’s Health Insurance Plan (CHIP) is a joint federal/state program where federal funds help states provide insurance for nearly 9 million children, mostly low- and middle-income. However, for the first time since the program’s creation, the Republican-led Congress has failed to vote to reauthorize the program in time.
For now, states have enough funding to continue to support insurance for their recipients—but in the next weeks and months, the funding will run out, and states will be forced to kick children off of health care unless the Senate and House act now to reauthorize this vital program. 844-241-1141.
