Neurosurgery Endorses Legislation to Permanently Fund CHIP

On Feb. 10, the AANS, the CNS and the AANS/CNS Joint Section on Pediatric Neurological Surgery endorsed H.R. 66, the Comprehensive Access to Robust Insurance Now Guaranteed (CARING) for Kids Act. Sponsored by Reps. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.) and Lucy McBath (D-Ga.), this legislation would permanently extend the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Despite widespread support, CHIP remains a temporary program that requires reauthorization every few years, with its current authorization set to expire in 2028.
