Lawmakers Should Renew Funding for Children’s Health Insurance Program, Editorial Argues
A Los Angeles Times editorial argues that the Children's Health Insurance Program "plugs a troubling gap between Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act's subsidized plans." The editorial urges lawmakers to renew funding for the program, adding that "states need to know whether they can count on federal funding or whether they will have to spend far more dollars of their own." However, it notes that "chances are slim that Congress will act on CHIP this year."
