Update: February 12, 2018

Federal funding to the states for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) expired on September 30th, 2017, which marked the end of fiscal year 2017.

In order for the program to continue as is, Congress needed to pass legislation that would reauthorize funding to the program.

On January 22, 2018 CHIP was reauthorized for six years when Congress passed an extension to the federal budget. This six year reauthorization was then extended to ten years on February 8, 2018 when Congress passed the budget bill.
