Funding for Children’s Health Insurance Program Must Be Renewed

Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which provides health-care coverage for nearly 8 million children from families with incomes too high to qualify for Medicaid but cannot afford private coverage, is set to expire October 1, 2015.

Congress is attempting to intervene, proposing legislation that will extend the program for another four years. Read why CHIP is necessary to assuring child health in America in this article published by Washington University in St. Louis.
