In this report, Families USA estimates how much new funding Montana could receive for the Montana Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) 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 Montana'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 Montana.
