Congress lets funds expire for children's insurance program

Congress lets funds expire for children's insurance program

Federal funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) has not been renewed by Congress. CHIP provides insurance to over 125,000 Minnesota women and children. Emergency funding was provided to the state for the months of October and November, but now that money is also gone and the state is footing the bill. Department of Health and Human Services commissioner Emily Piper joined the program to discuss how this impacts children and pregnant women in Minnesota.
