With CHIP reauthorized, one of the best vehicles for extension is no longer available to a list of vital and lesser known ‘health-extenders.’ that remain in limbo. Since this Congress seems to be unwilling to deal with these issues individually their best opportunity is a bigger package. Some of the more important programs include the Community Health Centers and the home visiting, the Maternal Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program. It was hoped that they would have moved with CHIP once Congress failed to pass that program last September. The next opportunity would be the next CR, but it seems likely that the CR will be stripped of any additional priorities. Besides this next CR other potential vehicles include a disaster relief package and a future budget cap deal.
