medicaidFederal financing for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) in Colorado, expires on September 30, 2017. It is essential that this federal funding be allowed to continue. CHP+ is an important source of health coverage for kids and pregnant women from moderate-income families in Colorado, but it is only successful because it rests on the shoulders of the Medicaid program.
