NY warns HHS over children's health care funding delay

NY warns HHS over children's health care funding delay”

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that CHIP serves 350,000 children in this state, including 7,366 in the North Country.

CHIP funding stopped on September 30, and states, which use this funding plus their own to cover kids' health care, will soon have to make tough decisions about whether to continue it.

The governor also said Congress's failure to renew the Health Centers Program by the deadline will mean a $138 million cut in funding for 650 health centers around the state.

In a letter to Acting Health and Human Services Secretary Eric Hargan, the state's health commissioner warned about the consequences if CHIP funding is not renewed "in the next few weeks". The administrative burden and the incredible anxiety for families (especially those with children who have chronic conditions needing frequent care) created by congressional feet-dragging should not be discounted and requires urgent action. Each state's program has its own name; in NY it's Child Health Plus, which predates the federal CHIP.

The House and Senate have both passed CHIP funding bills through committees, but partisan divisions over how to pay for the program's extension in the House have caused delays.

"To continue Child Health Plus without federal funding would cost New York State taxpayers over $1 billion", his press release said.

"No family in NY or elsewhere should ever have to make the agonizing decision between taking their child to the doctor and footing the cost of exorbitant medical bills they can not afford", Schumer said. "We urge you to renew CHIP now before the lives of children are put at risk".
