Looming loss of CHIP coverage has local mother worried

WACO, Texas (KWTX) The looming loss of Children’s Health Insurance Program coverage has one local mother worried.

Two months has passed since the last funding authorization ran out, and the Washington Post reports that Texas has asked the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for $90 million in leftover funds to delay shutting down the state’s program.

A Texas Health and Human Services spokeswoman told the Post the state is confident it will get the extra money, which keep CHIP running through February.
