At least 11 states will exhaust their Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) funds before the end of the year, if Congress fails to extend federal funding for the program, according to a survey of state Medicaid officials by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Officials in another 20 states, including KENTUCKY, expect to run out of money for the state-federal program, which provides coverage for nearly 9 million children of low-income families nationwide, by the end of March 2018.
