Deti said this is an issue all states are facing. This is not a hypothetical - about two million CHIP kids have serious chronic conditions.
CHIP, a program for families who don't qualify for Medicaid but have difficulty buying health insurance, was last renewed in 2015 and is set to run out of money in March.
U.S. Rep. Evan Jenkins, R-W.Va., recently led a letter from the West Virginia House delegation urging the Senate to pass a long-term reauthorization of the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and give families some peace of mind this holiday season. They have not listened to us. "About one in eight children are covered only by CHIP". The spokesperson added, as of right now, Pennsylvania has not needed to use any reserves to fund the program. It has enjoyed bipartisan support since it was enacted in 1997.
For instance, Democrats objected to a CHIP-extension bill passed November 3 by the House because it would have offset those allocations with cuts in other health programs.

CHIP provides healthcare aid to 9 million Americans; state officials fear that a lapse of CHIP would be detrimental to recipients.
A family of four with an income of up to $51,168 can receive free CHIP insurance for their children, while a family of four with an income of up to $77,244 qualifies for low-priced CHIP insurance, according to the state Department of Human Services.
Minnesota is expecting to be reimbursed by the federal government for the costs it has incurred since the funding lapsed in October.
"The CHIP program is important for thousands of families across MS, and its reauthorization is a high priority for me", said Sen.
