Federal Expansion of Children's Health Coverage Potential Savings That Could Provide Sources of State and Local Matching Funds

July 17, 1997 - The House and Senate budget reconciliation bills currently pending in Congress both provide additional funds for the states to expand health care coverage for low-income children. The Senate bill authorizes expansion to cover children in families with incomes up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level, while the House bill allows coverage in families with incomes up to 300 percent of the poverty level. Both bills require a state match, but at a lower matching rate than under the Medi-Cal Program.
