SCHIP Update

More than 21,000 Idaho children may soon lose their health insurance. The State Children's Health Insurance Program, known as SCHIP, may end if Congress and President George Bush cannot come to a compromise over the program's reauthorization.

Joan Cartan-Hansen and her guests look at the program's impact and what the future holds for so many of Idaho's children. This week's guests include Mary Lou Kinney, Cover Idaho Kids Director, and Leslie Clement, Administrator for the Medicaid division of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.
