CHIP funding expected to pass next week

CHIP funding expected to pass next week

You may recall the news from a few days ago that extending the Children's Health Insurance Program would cost only $0.8 billion, which should make it very easy to pass. Orrin Hatch, who heads the Senate's Finance Committee, CBO Director Keith Hall said that a five-year extension of CHIP would cost the government $800 million over a 10-year period.

The families enrolled in CHIP are working families, said Joshua Austin, program manager for strategic initiatives for the West Virginia University Health Sciences Center. The House plan includes a controversial funding provision - opposed by Democrats - that takes millions of dollars from the Affordable Care Act's Prevention and Public Health Fund and increases Medicare premiums for some higher-earning beneficiaries.

"I'm proud to announce that the first piece of legislation I'll co-sponsor will ensure a long-term funding solution for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)", Jones said in a statement Thursday.

"I don't want to be jumping for joy, but as a result of this terrible policy, CBO now says that CHIP will cost significantly less - and that over a decade, it will produce a net savings", Pallone says.

The extension could be attached to a short-term funding bill that must pass before January 19.

If that accident happened later this year, though, Natali, 50, of Aliquippa, Pa., might be scrambling.

Dr. Todd Wolynn, a Pittsburgh pediatrician, said families are reacting with "fear and disbelief" to CHIP's uncertain future.

Before the latest cash infusion, several states sent letters to parents warning that the program was in jeopardy absent congressional action.

So far, the debate has centered on a five-year extension of CHIP's budget.

While members of Congress on both sides of the aisle insist that CHIP must be reauthorized, GOP leaders have yet to even schedule a vote, and the program has been stuck in limbo for months amid disagreements about how to pay for it. I have long supported the CHIP program. "However, due to a number of variables relating to state expenditure rates and reporting, we are unable to say with certainty whether there is enough funding for every state to continue its CHIP program through March 31, 2018".

"These families don't know if the rug is being pulled out from them at any time", he said.

Williams said in her e-mail that the $135 million now won't be immediately needed because of the December spending bill.

"It really seems to be the impact of our fragmented health care system", said Ashish Thakar, the study's lead author.
