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

Why is this? One researcher claims that it probably has a lot to do with the United States' chaotic health care system, which frankly, isn't so surprising considering Congress isn't funding kids' health insurance. Now, numerous 9 million children enrolled in the program, as well as pregnant mothers and babies born over the next while risk being without health insurance coverage as CHIP funding runs out.
The report suggested it may be hard to accurately predict exactly when funding will run out because Congress has tinkered with the rules used to redistribute unspent money to states.
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.
In December, state officials believed DE would run out of funding by January 31.
Although hospitals, doctor groups and child health advocates have been sounding the alarm about CHIP for months, the Trump administration has kept quiet, saying only that it's up to Congress to renew the program.
Ariel Haughton of Pittsburgh said she's upset her federal lawmakers have left CHIP in flux for her two children and millions of kids around the country.
When Marina Natali's younger son broke his arm ice-skating a year ago, she did not have to worry about paying: CHIP footed all of his medical bills. She can not afford private coverage for her two children on her dental hygienist pay.
Walker doesn't believe CHIP will go away entirely, but she said the state needs to have a plan to figure out how to provide coverage with its current resources. Republicans proposed a series of deeply partisan spending cuts to cover the costs of extending CHIP, such as slashing Obamacare programs and Medicare. "We should stop the uncertainty and permanently extend CHIP". "They might not have a family physician, or a clear support system". They may not know the state-branded programs they use, such as BadgerCare Plus in Wisconsin, Healthy Kids in Florida and All Kids in Alabama, are part of the CHIP program.
Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, said she's frustrated with Congress for not making the bill a priority.
Last month's temporary budget fix, H.R. 1370, also provided $550 million for community health centers that serve more than 25 million, many in struggling communities - enough to last only through March 31. "They seem so cavalier about it", she said.
