Wyman: 17000 Conn. Children To Lose Healthcare If CHIP Is Not Renewed

Wyman: 17000 Conn. Children To Lose Healthcare If CHIP Is Not Renewed

"If I didn't have the insurance, it's possible he would have developed (asthma) completely", Lopez said in Spanish referring to the Children's Health Insurance Program, which covers about 9 million children nationwide.

The Alabama Department of Public Health will not freeze enrollment for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) on January 1, and also said it will hold off on its plans to terminate coverage on February 1 because of a temporary funding bill that was approved by Congress on December 21.

The Capitol is quiet as lawmakers finished legislative business for the year and passed a temporary spending bill to avoid a government shutdown, in Washington, Friday, Dec. 22, 2017.

CHIP covers children whose parents don't qualify for Medicaid, but can't afford private health insurance.

According to the Georgetown study, the January cutoffs could affect almost 2 million children, while another million children would be targeted in February. I urge Congress to act now to ensure that Idahos children dont lose access to the care they deserve. CHIP caps cost-sharing like deductibles and premiums at 5 percent of a family's income, but there is no such ceiling on the cost of insurance on the exchanges.

CHIP has bipartisan support, but funding for the program has been held up by a partisan dispute over how to pay for the cost.

The year-end continuing resolution required a 60-vote margin to pass the Senate, where the Republicans control only 52 votes, giving the Democratic caucus significant leverage in how to structure the legislation. Caring for and loving every child is not a liberal of conservative issue.

Moreover, numerous state governments that are implementing the CHIP cuts, including three of the four states (Colorado, Connecticut and Virginia) that have recently sent off mass cutoff notifications, are under Democratic Party control. It really is a sad situation and a lot of people won't be enjoying a happy new year because they'll be worrying about how to pay for their children's health coverage.

"It has a lot of exceptions and it takes funding from a lot of municipal clinics and other clinics that provide healthcare for our community", he said. Funding for both programs expired on September 30.
