Topic: Health (Health services for children)

Type: Report

Coverage: Illinois

Abstract:

In this report, Families USA estimates how much new funding Illinois could receive for All Kids (the name for Illinois's SCHIP and Medicaid programs) if SCHIP is reauthorized with the full $50 billion in new federal funds. We also examine the effect this new money will have on Illinois'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 Illinois.
