Summary

A LAW PROPOSED BY INITIATIVE PETITION

I-155 establishes the Healthy Montana Kids plan to expand and coordinate health coverage for uninsured children under the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), the Montana Medicaid Program, and employer-sponsored health insurance. The State Health Department may: raise income eligibility levels for children under CHIP and Medicaid; simplify transitions between CHIP and Medicaid coverage; provide assistance for children in employer-sponsored insurance; and work with health care providers, schools, organizations, and agencies to encourage enrollment of uninsured children. Funding for I-155 will come from a share of the insurance premium tax and federal matching funds.

I-155 costs an estimated $22 million of state funds, paid from the treasury with a share of current revenues from the insurance premium tax.

Actual expenditures will depend on other factors, including the amount of federal matching dollars and enrollment.

[] FOR expanding CHIP and Medicaid eligibility for uninsured children, coordinating children’s health coverage, and encouraging enrollment of eligible children.

[] AGAINST expanding CHIP and Medicaid eligibility for uninsured children, coordinating children’s health coverage, and encouraging enrollment of eligible children.
