October 2017

Legislation providing for a five-year extension of federal funding for the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) has been approved by House and Senate committees, but as of the October 2017 Commission meeting, had not been enacted.

This presentation recaps MACPAC’s January 2017 recommendations for the future of children’s coverage, which include a five-year extension for CHIP; discusses projections for when states are expected to run out of their federal allotments; and shares insights on how states are managing with the uncertainty.
