Florida’s uninsured rate for children, while still higher than the national average, is at an all-time low of 6.2 percent. This progress is the result of many years of work through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. However, Federal funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is due to expire on September 30, 2017. Florida’s CHIP program is the fourth largest in the nation, thus much is at stake for the state. Coverage for more than 340,000 children in Florida is at risk without additional federal funding.
