The article reports on the debate between U.S. Democrats and Republicans over whom the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) should cover. The controversy has spilled over to Medicaid, leaving states and health providers worried about what is coming next. During several hearings already held in 2008, Democrats aimed a critical eye at the Bush administration's attempts to limit SCHIP growth, including the president's veto of legislation that would have expanded the program to higher-income households.
