MGN Image

Gov. Scott Walker is calling on Congress to renew the Children's Health Insurance Program which sends $115 million in federal payments to Wisconsin.

"Thanks to the Louisiana Children's Health Insurance Program, children who would otherwise have little to no medical care have access to high performing health care services, resulting in one of the lowest child uninsured rates in the nation", said Gov. Edwards. In nearly all states, children in families who earn up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level - the equivalent of $40,840 for a family of three - qualify for CHIP, according to KFF.

Officials said the revision means CMS can make states whole with federal dollars through December 31, 2017, even if a state has already received its original share of the redistribution funding under the current proration rule.

But the program expired September 30th, and Congress has yet to agree on further funding. "As we continue to work to reach a broader agreement on extending funding for these vital programs, it is imperative that the bipartisan House package be the foundation for what ultimately becomes law".
