American Children Have A Higher Chance Of Dying Before Adulthood

Also like the CHIP program, the funding for the Community Health Center expired on September 30, leaving many health centers across IN anxious if they will have the resources they need to continue to serve Hoosiers.

That may have gotten easier with a January 5 estimate showing that a Senate bill to extend CHIP would increase deficits by $800 million over 10 years, far lower than the previous projection of more than $8 billion.

Oregon's CHIP program, called Oregon Healthy Kids, a year ago helped more than 140,000 Oregon children access health care.

A press conference was held Thursday at the Kanawha City Health Center in Charleston where health care advocates discussed the benefits of CHIP and the importance of continuing to serve the almost 21,000 West Virginia children who depend on the coverage.

Lawmakers in the House Energy and Commerce Committee previously fought over how to pay for CHIP, but Committee Chairman Greg Walden, R-Ore., said the reduced cost estimate would eliminate many roadblocks.

In his 35 years of practice, Patel, of San Antonio, has seen the lengths to which parents will go to care for their critically ill children.

Had that accident happened this year, though, Natali, 50, of Aliquippa, Pa., might be scrambling. "We have 2.6 million children who are enrolled in the Florida KidCare program, including the Medicaid (children)". The sudden turnaround for the program's prospects - as states entered panic mode and made contingency plans to close their programs - came from a new analysis by the Congressional Budget Office.

More recently, the group spearheaded a call for a Congressional investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Trump. The move comes after almost every woman at this year's Golden Globes wore black to show their support.

Keeping kids healthy should be a top priority, he said.

Dr. Todd Wolynn, a Pittsburgh pediatrician, said families are reacting with "fear and disbelief" to CHIP's uncertain future. Every Child Matters, a non-partisan non-profit, urged the public to call on their elected representatives to "act immediately on a 5-year CHIP reauthorization".

"Americans are exhausted of waiting on their government to do the right thing - lives are depending on it. Let's end this waiting game and #FundCHIPNow", U.S. Sen. I have long supported the CHIP program.

"These families don't know if the rug is being pulled out from them at any time", he said.

Dr. Joanne Hilden, a pediatric cancer physician in Aurora, Colo., and past president of the American Society of Hematology-Oncology, said the families of cancer patients who depend on CHIP are in a hard position because they can't schedule care to be finished before program funding runs out.

Williams said in her e-mail that the $135 million now won't be immediately needed because of the December spending bill.
