Abstract:

In this report, Families USA estimates how much new funding West Virginia could receive for the West Virginia Children's Health Insurance Program (WVCHIP) and Medicaid if SCHIP is reauthorized with the full $50 billion in new federal funds. We also examine the effect this new money will have on West Virginia's economy, measured in increased business activity, jobs, and wages. We found that, for a whole host of economic reasons, fully funding SCHIP in accordance with the budget resolution will be good for West Virginia.
