The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), a landmark initiative to broaden health insurance coverage for low-income children, was created with bipartisan support as part of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 (BBA) and funded for a period of 10 years with an appropriation of approximately $40 billion. After two years of temporary extensions, the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate passed the CHIP Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) in January 2009. President Barack Obama signed it into law in February of that year, extending $44 billion in new funding through federal fiscal year 2013.
