ABSTRACT
The article reports on the postponement of the enforcement of a directive that prohibits U.S. states from expanding health insurance coverage for children. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the directive to restrict federal matching funds under the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). The directive is expected to impede states from receiving funding for children belonging to families with income above 250% of the federal poverty level. A study shows the benefits of insurance to children with chronic illnesses.
