Child insurance funds to run out

If the state uses the accounting trick, Medicaid will temporarily lose some of its support, but Texas would be able to reclaim the money retroactively if Congress reauthorizes CHIP funding.

All of those programs had September 30 reauthorization deadlines, which Congress missed.

Hanna-Attisha, who helped uncover lead poisoning in Flint children and is leading efforts to help them recover, said CHIP funding has "a huge Flint impact by supporting our statewide Lead Safe Home program, which seeks to proactively eliminate children's exposure to lead, and (provides) $7 million in our pipe replacement program".

"So those families who are working jobs who may not qualify or the jobs may not offer family insurance, but also make too much to qualify for Medicaid; so it's really a bridge between Medicaid and private insurance". In nearly all states, children in families who earn up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level - the equivalent of $40,840 for a family of three - qualify for CHIP, according to KFF.

Currently, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is restricted by a statutory formula in how it allocates redistribution funds to cover state shortfalls occurring in the absence of funded FY2018 CHIP allotments.

In Michigan, CHIP funding is projected to last through April or May, said Angela Minicuci, a spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. "We're hopeful that federal funds will be made available to carry the program through February, and that Congress renews the program soon".
