Senate, House Announce Agreement to Renew, Improve Children's Health Insurance Program Now

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

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
