The Clock Is Ticking Louder for the Children’s Health Insurance Program
[Source: Education Week]
When the Sept. 30th deadline approached for reauthorizing the Children’s Health Insurance Program, no one seriously thought that Congress would let the bipartisan-supported health plan expire.
When the deadline passed, there was still little concern: States still had money available in their coffers to pay for the $14 billion program, which serves about 9 million children whose parents earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but who can’t afford insurance for their children on the open market. (CHIP also covers about 370,000 pregnant women.)
