Under current law, states begin exhausting federal CHIP funds this fall–in FY 2016. This presentation provides a preview of the of the key points in MACPAC’s March 2015 Report to Congress on Medicaid and CHIP, including:

  • 1.1 million children would become uninsured in 2016 if CHIP ends.
  • Most of the children who become uninsured would be eligible for employer-sponsored coverage (59.1%) rather than subsidized exchange coverage (40.9%).
  • Among these uninsured children eligible for job-based coverage, out-of-pocket premiums to cover the children would average $5,509 (13.2% of income).
