Children could lose health benefits

RICHMOND – The Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services is notifying Virginia families with one or more family members enrolled in the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that they could lose their coverage unless Congress reauthorizes the program soon.

This would affect more than 400 children in the Twin Counties.

If Congress does not reauthorize CHIP, Virginia will run out of funding for its program, called FAMIS (Family Access to Medical Insurance Security), on Jan. 31, 2018.
