States have broad flexibility to decide which uninsured children they want to cover through their Children’s Health Insurance Program income eligibility levels. Almost all states have elected to cover children up to or above 200 percent of the federal poverty level, with more than half of states covering children in families with incomes up to 250 percent of the FPL. Along with Medicaid, CHIP has been successful in driving down the number of uninsured children.
