If Congress doesn't fund children's health insurance, Texas officials have an idea

On Tuesday Murphy introduced House Resolution 4541, which would reauthorize the Children's Health Insurance Program [commonly known as CHIP, ] community health centers funding, and other critical public health initiatives like the Special Diabetes program, the National Health Service Corps, and Family-to-Family Health Information Centers. And while the U.S. House of Representatives in early November approved a five-year extension of the program, a proposed extension has stalled in the Senate. "This should be our priority".

CHIP provides low-priced coverage to children in families that earn too much to qualify for Medicaid.

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.

The Burlington Free Press reports CHIP in Vermont is a funding source for the Dr. Dynasaur program, which provides coverage for pregnant women and children.

Some states have said they may to freeze or reduce their programs when CHIP funds run out. Since then, the commission has requested an extra $90 million from the federal government to keep CHIP through February.

Because CHIP-eligible children are covered through Medicaid in OH, the state says the program will continue, although with federal reimbursement through the lower Medicaid match rate instead of the much higher match rate of CHIP. "We're hopeful that federal funds will be made available to carry the program through February, and that Congress renews the program soon".
