Low-income children with chronic conditions at risk for significant costs without CHIP renewal

May 12, 2017

Low-income children with chronic conditions and their families could experience drastic cost increases for health care as much as $233 to $2,472 in annual expenditures, depending on income levels and individual needs if the Children’s Health Insurance Program is not renewed and the families are switched to Marketplace health insurance plans.

“Prior evaluations have suggested that Marketplace plans overall offer less generous protections against high out-of-pocket expenses when compared to [Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)] plans,” Alon Peltz, MD, MBA, a postdoctoral fellow at the Yale School of Medicine, and colleagues wrote. “In 2015, the secretary of health and human services, in conducting a statutorily required review of Marketplace plans for children’s coverage, declared that they were not comparable to CHIP plans in providing coverage for children’s services.”
