Texas expects flat growth for Children’s Health Insurance Program
Texas officials haven't requested much new money in the upcoming state budget for Children's Health Insurance Program that insures children from working-poor families because they predict it will barely grow, even as the economy sours and the state population swells. Advocates for low-income families, though, are skeptical that there will be little or no enrollment growth in CHIP. Though enrollment in Texas soared to nearly 477,000 in August, from 300,000 a year ago, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission says it believes growth will slow to a crawl.
