NASHP Blogs about CHIP’s Future

NASHP: The National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) blogged about the future of CHIP based on discussions at NASHP’s 27th Annual Conference. The blog notes that if federal funding is not extended, many families may seek marketplace coverage, which, unlike CHIP, has not been tailored to low-income children’s needs. The blog also notes that the lack of clarity around CHIP’s future may create difficulties for states as they develop their budgets for children’s coverage
