Verify: What happens to Idaho kids if CHIP funding is cut?

BOISE - A federally-funded program that provides health insurance for uninsured children in families that make too much to qualify for Medicaid has been in limbo for months, with Congress passing only temporary funding.

Unless Congress votes to fully renew funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), about nine million American children will be left without it.

CHIP is federally funded, but administered by each individual state.
