CHIP Funding Bill Cosponsored by Colo. Senators

Both of Colorado’s Senators have cosponsored a funding bill that will extend federal funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) through 2022.  The Senate Finance Committee approved the bill by voice vote on Wednesday, October 4.  Legislative action is needed to reauthorize funding which expired on September 30.

The Bill known as “Keeping Kids’ Insurance Dependable and Secure Act”  is designed to also transition CHIP to a traditional federal-state partnership which will, over time, allow more flexibility to each state.
