Senate, House Announce Agreement to Renew, Improve Children's Health Insurance Program Now
Date:9/21/2007

Bipartisan, bicameral coalition ready to move on full reauthorization of vital program

CHIP coverage of childless adults and parents will be phased out to maintain the program's focus on kids.

Investing $35 Billion in New Funding for CHIP. The agreement reauthorizes the Children's Health Insurance Program, investing an additional $35 billion over five years to strengthen CHIP's financing, increase health insurance coverage for low-income children, and improve the quality of health care children receive.

Lowering the rate of uninsured low-income children. The agreement will provide health coverage to millions of low-income children who are currently uninsured.

Pending final Congressional Budget Office estimates, the reduction in the number of unins
