- Medicaid State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)
As part of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, Congress created the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) to address the growing problem of children without health insurance. SCHIP was designed as a Federal/State partnership, similar to Medicaid, with the goal of expanding health insurance to children whose families earn too much money to be eligible for Medicaid, but not enough money to purchase private insurance.
