CHIP and Health Care Reform Update Jan 5, 2010

 


H.R. 3590, the Senate vehicle for health care reform, passed the Senate on December 24th with a change that extends funding for CHIP through FFY 2015 (instead of 2019).  It is possible that Congress would reauthorize CHIP when the 2015 time line expires. The article below is from the National Health Law Program and describes some of the issues and negotiations pertaining to CHIP and Medicaid.  So far, both the Senate and House Reform proposals still contain funding for school-based health centers.
