MACPAC recommends Congress extend CHIP funding through FY 2017

Issued By
June 14, 2014

The Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC) today recommended that Congress extend federal funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program for an additional two years, through fiscal year 2017. In its June report to Congress, the commission said the extension would give Congress, the Department of Health and Human Services and states time to evaluate the adequacy of health coverage for children covered by the program. The commission said it plans to "examine a range of issues about the design and adequacy of coverage for the population now covered by CHIP and will offer options to provide a more seamless continuum of children's coverage that better accommodates transitions in coverage among Medicaid, the exchanges and employer-sponsored insurance." MACPAC is a nonpartisan advisory commission charged with making recommendations to the Congress, HHS secretary and states. The June report examines how CHIP, Medicaid and their interaction with the Affordable Care Act affect the health and health care of low- and moderate-income families.
