Vigil Held In Support of Children's Insurance Program

Vigil Held In Support of Children's Insurance Program

Jones became the 24 co-sponsor of the bill, the Keep Kids' Insurance Dependable and Secure (KIDS) Act of 2017.

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.

All five members of West Virginia's congressional delegation have said they support CHIP funding. But after Congress approved a short-term spending plan on December 21, ALL Kids withdrew those warnings for the time being.

Congress has yet to approve funding for CHIP, or the Children's Health Insurance Program. The internal estimate comes just a few days after the agency reported publicly that it had slashed its estimate of how much it would cost the government to renew CHIP for five years-from $8 billion to around $800 million-following Republicans' move to repeal the individual mandate as part of a tax overhaul. "We can show our commitment to increasing access to treatment by reauthorizing the National Health Service Corps program, that expired in September".

A San Antonio pediatrician, Dr. Carmen Garza, is advising parents to be sure to keep their children's asthma medications and other prescriptions current and fill any refills that they can so they don't get left without vital medicines if CHIP expires. The House plan includes a controversial provision - opposed by Democrats - that takes millions of dollars from the Affordable Care Act's Prevention and Public Health Fund and increases Medicare premiums for some higher-earning beneficiaries.

Some states will reach the bottom of their CHIP funding before March, according to an analysis published Wednesday by Kaiser, which said that before the funding extension 18 states estimated they would run out of money by the end of January.

"While the balance in the redistribution pool may be sufficient to cover February shortfalls enabling all states to cover children through February, it has become increasingly hard to predict how long funds will last for any particular state", the center concluded (PDF).

A 2014 report by Health Affairs comparing Medicaid and CHIP coverage to employer-sponsored insurance, revealed that families enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP fared better in medical bill repayments than families with private insurance (10 percent versus 19 percent). She can not afford private coverage for her two children on her dental hygienist pay. "They might not have a family physician, or a clear support system".

"If CHIP coverage disappears, we run the risk of kids going without care or emergency room visits going up", he said.

If Pennsylvania cancels CHIP, she likely won't bring Javier, 2, for his two-year checkup unless there's something clearly wrong with him.
