Funding CHIP for 10 years would actually save $6 billion: CBO

Funding CHIP for 10 years would actually save $6 billion: CBO

ALL Kids, the Alabama program funded through CHIP, warned late past year that it would have to stop enrolling children into the program on January 1 and may run out of funding by February 1.

"Our problem has been the pay-fors", he said.

"It's caused such major upheaval in our lives that it's impossible not to think about", said Montoya, of Longmont, Colo.

They baked chocolate chip cookies to raise awareness about the "CHIP" program, which provides affordable health insurance for working families.

Before the recent federal funding bill passed, Massachusetts Health and Human Services Secretary Marylou Sudders estimated CHIP money would run out in mid-January unless Congress took action. So by raising the cost of not renewing CHIP, Republicans have dramatically lowered the cost of reauthorizing it. The debate instead focuses on how to offset the costs of the program. The budget office updated its estimates after the adoption of the tax law.

"I just can't believe we're in this situation of stop and start of what we need to do if we don't receive additional funds from CMS to continue the CHIP program here in DE". Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) tweeted Wednesday. "We will be vigilant to ensure this program isn't subject to repeated short-term fixes and constantly looming deadlines". I have long supported the CHIP program. "These are kids who deserve to have health care and need health care access". "You control the Senate agenda @SenateMajLdr".

Keeping kids healthy should be a top priority, he said. Failing to act now shows the true face of Republicans & their donor-driven immoral agenda. "We expect to see states start to send out notices out to families that CHIP may expire or possibly order enrollment freezes by February 1st if Congress doesn't act". Montoya wasn't surprised to receive his letter, but it left him with "kind of a hopeless feeling".

CHIP helps states support children whose parents are not eligible for Medicaid, but can not afford insurance for their children. His wife previously worked at a camera store when they lived in Florida but now stays at home with their 3-year-old daughter.

"Anytime a child gets sick and needs to go to the doctor". "I know there are thousands of families in Colorado who don't have that ability".

Alabama and Utah are among several states unsure how long their federal CHIP funding will last, according to interviews with state officials. "We will have to decide between their health and spending the money on something else", she said. The program covers more than 9 million children nationwide, 400,000 of whom are in Texas.

Craig Robinson, executive director of Cabin Creek Health Systems, said without the program, the community will struggle.
