NAMD Calls for CHIP Reauthorization Before End of FY 2017

On September 13, NAMD sent a letter to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the Senate Finance Committee and the House Energy and Commerce Committee to request immediate prioritization of a Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) reauthorization. NAMD requested a reauthorization of at least, but not limited to, two years, along with maintenance of the 23-percentage point FMAP enhancement. A failure to reauthorize CHIP before the end of FY 2017 on September 30 could produce unnecessary disruption for states, providers, and the children and families covered by the program.
