New Qualification In The CHIP Program

  Stricter qualifications for the "Children's Health Insurance Program" could mean even more children would not qualify.  CHIP offers health insurance for children whose families earn too much to qualify for medicaid... But not enough to buy private insurance. Due to state budget reasons, 108-thousand children were dropped from the program between September first and February first. In the new proposal, families with more than five-thousand dollars in liquid assets would be disqualified. The changes, if adopted, would take effect in May.
