CMS Administers the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).  Program benefits became available October 1, 1997 and will provide $24 billion in federal matching funds over 10 years to help states expand health care coverage to over 5 million of the nation's uninsured children.

The State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) is jointly financed by the Federal and State governments and is administered by the States.  Within broad Federal guidelines, each State determines the design of its program, eligibility groups, benefit packages, payment levels for coverage, and administrative and operating procedures.  SCHIP provides a capped amount of funds to States on a matching basis for Federal fiscal years (FY) 1998 through 2007.  Federal payments under title XXI to States are based on State expenditures under approved plans effective on or after October 1, 1997.
