“Congress takes away insurance from 9 million kids”


SALON

“Lawmakers allowed a program know as the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which provided low-cost health insurance to 9 million children, expire over the weekend. Congress missed a Sept. 30 deadline to extend the Clinton-era initiative.

While some states will still have funding through 2018, states such as Arizona, Minnesota, North Carolina and Washington, D.C. are at risk of running out of CHIP money by the end of December, the New York Daily News reported.

CHIP cost the federal government $13.6 billion in 2016 and provided varying benefits in each state. Such benefits include routine checkups, doctor visits, prescriptions and other services.” MORE
