Childrens health insurance program hangs in limbo as Congress struggles to extend it-
WASHINGTON — Lawmakers’ assurances that they’ll soon renew the Children’s Health Insurance Program are of little comfort to Andrew Montoya, whose three daughters are covered by the program.
The uncertainty surrounding federal funding for the insurance program has him rethinking his current job as a non-profit attorney along with every routine purchase.
As members of Congress debate ways to pay for the program, Montoya said the prospect that he and his family may need several hundred dollars more per month to cover health care premiums is constantly on their minds.
“It’s caused such major upheaval in our lives that it’s impossible not to think about,” said Montoya, of Longmont, Colo.
