The main headline from CHIP (Children's Health Insurance Program) expiring reads like this:
'Up to 9 million children could lose their health insurance over the course of 2018'.
That is, if Congress can't get their collective acts together to renew the program in some sort of spending bill they can reasonably agree upon.
Here's an exert to consider for what this will mean on a state to state basis:
According the government's report, two states — Arizona and Minnesota — are set to run out of CHIP funding by December. In the first three months of 2018, an additional 27 states will deplete their CHIP funding, as will the District of Columbia. Another 19 states will run out of CHIP funds in between April and June.
There's still time to renew. But the year's end is coming quick. We have holidays a plenty coming. So if you're child is on CHIP or you know someone who's is and needs this program, I would encourage any and all to contact their congress people and urge them to get this program reinstated.
