Nevada governor urges Congress to fund children's health program

Nevada governor urges Congress to fund children's health program”

The health committee recently sent Delaware's congressional delegation a letter urging them to extend funding for the CHIP program by the end of September.

By providing an anchor within the health care system, CHIP coverage gives children and families access to vital preventive services and helps protect families' economic security.

The Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) or AR Kids in Arkansas expires on Saturday. An estimated 3,300 children are enrolled in Wyoming.

More than 8.9 million children are covered by the program.

The federal government pays 99 percent of the program operating cost of $43 million a year. Funding CHIP is not typically a controversial issue for legislators, but a tight window to pass a measure complicated matters.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee is scheduled to advance legislation next week that would renew the health insurance program.

Congress is expected to reauthorize the CHIP program through a bipartisan bill, though that could be weeks away. "I am hopeful that it will move quickly through Congress so that we can eliminate any uncertainty associated with the future of this critical program".

CHIP, created in the 1990s, provides low-priced coverage to families that make too much money to qualify for Medicaid. It was last reauthorized in 2009, as one of President Obama's initial legislative accomplishments.
