Texas Sen. John Cornyn confident Congress will pass CHIP funding

By now perhaps you've heard that Republicans in Congress are denying health care to poor children, because what else would those robber barons do?

A press conference was held Thursday at the Kanawha City Health Center in Charleston where health care advocates discussed the benefits of CHIP and the importance of continuing to serve the almost 21,000 West Virginia children who depend on the coverage.

"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".

But it also expects that extending the CHIP program even further will actually save the government money.

After Congress provided short-term funding, CT reopened enrollment in CHIP and indicated coverage would continue through February up until March 1, according to Kaiser.

Time is running out yet again for Congress to agree on a long-term solution for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), a bipartisan measure that insures close to 9 million children and pregnant women across the US.

The federal government paid almost $14.5 billion for CHIP expenses in fiscal 2016, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

The House passed a bill in November extending CHIP for five more years, but the Senate has yet to do so. Do the right thing and reauthorize CHIP today. House Energy and Commerce Chair Greg Walden (R-Ore.) said publicly on Thursday he wants six years as the committee's Ranking Democrat Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) griped about the so-called pay-fors that offset the cost of funding CHIP. the provisions in the previous GOP-led package targeted the grace period for Affordable Care Act enrollees as well as the ACA prevention fund.

Cornyn has previously promised funding for CHIP was imminent.

When Marina Natali's younger son broke his arm ice-skating in 2017, she didn't have to worry about paying for so much as a doctor's visit: CHIP footed all the medical bills. Texas has enough funding to cover its costs until the end of March, but the looming deadline has many families anxious about their long-term health care needs.

Federal funding for CHIP originally ran out October 1. I have long supported the CHIP program. So, if Congress doesn't fully fund CHIP, Ohio's percentage share of CHIP costs would rise steeply. "I have every reason to believe it's going to happen before Friday".

A third of the states anticipate running out of funds by the end of January, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.
