CHIP Sample Clauses

CHIP. CHIP is HHSC’s program to help Texas families obtain affordable coverage for their uninsured children (from birth through the month of their 19 th birthday). In 1999, the 76th Texas Legislature authorized the state’s participation in the federal CHIP program. The principal objective of the state legislation was to provide primary and preventative health care to low-income, uninsured children of Texas, including Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) who were not served by or eligible for other state-assisted health insurance programs. HHSC began operating CHIP in 2000. CHIP Members are currently covered through two (2) types of managed care entitieshealth maintenance organizations (HMOs) licensed by the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) and exclusive provider organizations (EPOs) with TDI-approved exclusive provider benefit plans (EPBPs). HMOs serve CHIP Members in eight (8), primarily urban Service Areas. EPOs serve the remaining CHIP Members, who reside primarily in the 174-county rural service area (the CHIP RSA). As of September 1, 2010, 523,895 children were enrolled in CHIP. Of these, 400,243 were enrolled in HMOs. The balance of the CHIP enrollment is in the EPOs serving the CHIP RSA. Refer to the Procurement Library for current and projected CHIP enrollment by Service Area. The CHIP Perinatal Program, a subprogram of CHIP, is for unborn children of women who are not eligible for Medicaid. The 2006-07 General Appropriations Act (Article II, Health and Human Services Commission, Rider 70, S.B. 1, 79th Legislature, Regular Session, 2005) authorized HHSC to expend funds to provide unborn children with health benefit coverage under CHIP. The result was the CHIP Perinatal Program, which began in January 2007. This benefit allows pregnant women who are ineligible for Medicaid due to income (whose income is greater than 185 percent and up to 200 percent of FPL) or immigration status (and whose income is below 200 percent of FPL) to receive prenatal care for their unborn children. Upon delivery, newborns in families with incomes at or below 185 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) move from the CHIP Perinatal Program to Medicaid, where they receive 12-months of continuous Medicaid coverage. CHIP Perinatal newborns in families with incomes above 185 percent FPL up to and including 200 percent FPL remain in the CHIP Perinatal Program and receive CHIP benefits for a 12-month coverage period, beginning on the date of enrollment as an unborn ...

CHIP. I hope this bipartisan approach is contagious. I hope this is not the ex- ception but becomes the rule. Every Member represents the same number of constituents, and every voice in this House needs and deserves to be heard. Todaythanks to the leadership of Leader PELOSI and Speaker BOEHNER and so many others—we are doing something that we can feel good about, something more than a campaign slo- gan, something that is more than red meat for the political base. b 0930 This is something that will help sen- iors, kids, and low-income families. It deserves our support. Before I reserve my time, Mr. Speak- er, I include for the RECORD the State- ment of Administration Policy, which begins with the following: ‘‘The Administration supports House passage of H.R. 2 because it would re- form the flawed Medicare physician payment system to incentivize quality and value’’ and ‘‘would make reforms that could help slow health care cost growth, and would extend other impor- tant programs such as health care cov- erage for children.’’ Statement of Administration Policy H.R. 2—MEDICARE ACCESS AND CHIP REAUTHORIZATION ACT (Rep. Burgess, R-Texas, and 10 cosponsors) The Administration supports House pas- sage of H.R. 2 because it would reform the flawed Medicare physician payment system to incentivize quality and value (a proposal called for in the President’s Fiscal Year 2016 Budget), would make reforms that could help slow health care cost growth, and would ex- tend other important programs such as health care coverage for children. Medicare payments to physicians are de- termined under a formula, commonly re- ferred to as the ‘‘sustainable growth rate’’ (SGR). This formula has called for reduc- tions in physician payment rates since 2002, which the Congress has overridden 17 times. Under the SGR, physician payment rates would be reduced by about 21 percent on April 1, 2015. A cut of this magnitude could reduce access to physicians for Medicare beneficiaries throughout the country. H.R. 2 would replace this system with one that of- fers predictability and accelerates participa- tion in alternative payment models that en- courage quality and efficiency. The proposal would advance the Administration’s goal of moving the Nation’s health care delivery system toward one that achieves better care, smarter spending, and healthier people through the expansion of new health care payment models, which could contribute to slowing long-term health care cost growth. The Administration al...
