Rep. Lowey joins fight to save Children's Health Insurance Program

Rep. Lowey joins fight to save Children's Health Insurance Program

"It really is kind of a dual message", said Nathan Moracco, assistant commissioner for health care at the state Department of Human Services.

So why hasn't Congress renewed CHIP?

Minnesota children will not lose health coverage due to Congress' delay in extending the Children's Health Insurance Program, but political inaction is already costing the state millions of dollars. "From the citizen perspective, they're not losing coverage and we're doing everything we can to maintain their coverage as long as possible". We'll hear from the lawmakers behind the Medicaid expansion proposal and get additional analysis from Adam Searing with the Center for Children and Families at Georgetown University's Health Policy Institute and from Scott Darius of the patient advocacy group Florida Voices for Health. However, because of the way it uses its share of CHIP funding, Minnesota has not been hit as hard (more on that in a bit).

Casey says the money for this program - which covers nine million American kids nationwide - is there, so it's just a matter of renewing the federal program.

"This is not a funding issue right now", he said.

Coinbase halts transactions amid probe into possible Bitcoin Cash insider trading
Armstrong says that his goal to to make Coinbase the easiest to use digital currency exchange that customers trust the most. Bitcoin Cash first surfaced online back in August when a group of developers "forked" the Bitcoin blockchain.

"I strongly support the CHIP program, which helps thousands of West Virginia children stay healthy".

For the past couple of months, Wolf has pushed for the federal government to reauthorize CHIP.

House Republicans released a short-term spending measure last week that would fund CHIP for five years, but with offsets Democrats have criticized.

In Oregon, the program provides coverage for about 120,000 children and 1,700 pregnant women.

CHIP provides free or low-priced health insurance options for children in families who earn too much money to qualify for Medicaid but do not have access to health coverage through other means.

Sales of existing homes hit highest level in almost 11 years
At November's sales pace, it would take a record low 3.4 months to exhaust the current inventory, down from 3.9 months in October. The strong demand for buying homes is a sign of an increasingly vibrant economy after a steady, eight-year expansion.

Not this year. CHIP funding expired September 30 as the program got caught up in squabbling over repealing the Affordable Care Act - though CHIP is an entirely separate program.

"The CHIP program is important for thousands of families across MS, and its reauthorization is a high priority for me", said Sen.

California's nonpartisan Legislative Analyst's Office projects that if Congress does not reauthorize CHIP during the current fiscal year, state government would be on the hook for some $280 million through the end of June and nrarly $600 million for fiscal 2018-19.

Lawmakers came through with the money, in order to avoid having to send out Christmas notifications to almost half a million children that they would be losing their health care.
