Federal funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) expired a month ago, and states are dipping into unspent money or asking for help from the Trump administration to maintain coverage until Congress reaches a deal to extend it.

Meanwhile, five states and Washington, D.C., are estimating they could run out of funds by the end of this year or early January, according to a report from Georgetown’s Center for Children and Families.
