Background & Historical Info

What is the current status of Funding?

House lawmakers released the plan (PDF) to add just $2.85 billion to CHIP for the first two quarters of next year.   Modern Health Care 12.21.2017  

46 States and the District of Columbia cover children up to or above 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), and 24 of these states offer coverage to children in families with income at 250% of the FPL or higher. In certain CA Counties see C-Chip.  States may get the CHIP enhanced match for coverage up to 300% of the FPL, which is higher than the Medicaid federal funding matching rate. See information on CHIP Financing.

States that expand coverage above 300% of the FPL get the Medicaid matching rate.  States have the option to provide continuous eligibility to children who remain eligible for CHIP.
