On Monday, January 22nd, the U.S. Congress passed and the President signed a bipartisan continuing resolution, which also included the six-year extension of funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The law provides funding for states to implement CHIP through September 30, 2023. This means that 90,000 children and pregnant women in Colorado will continue to receive health insurance through the CHP+ program. The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing has posted additional information to their Future of CHP+ website.
